Preen gift guide: Gifts that encourage girl power

Though feminists have come far, the term feminism continues to face criticism. We’re not suggesting that consumerism is the solution, but a gift that will encourage our fellow feminists to continue fighting for our truths would be very much appreciated. Besides, it’s the season of celebration, and we should all take the time to celebrate women who continue to fight for equality despite the backlash. 

The following list includes inspirational posters, boob-inspired pots, and Christmas cards that hopefully won’t just empower but encourage more people to try to understand feminism a little bit better.
