Feminist gifts for a woman who already owns a "Nevertheless She Persisted" shirt


It’s been some year (or uh, years) and our feminist friends and family have been out there fighting for equality, challenging injustice, and, possibly sheetcaking every so often. We’re excited to honor their efforts with some incredible feminist gifts, off of which support women owned-businesses, women authors, women, creators, and women makers. 

Oh and hey…they aren’t just for women. Just sayin…
