Ultimate List of Feminist Gift Ideas | ShopGirlDaily.com

I make no pretenses about the fact that I am not a perfect parent, but one of the most important things I hope to convey to my son and my daughter is that they are equal to one another and to everyone else. Both of them can do whatever it is they wish to do in this world and I will do whatever is within my power to help them accomplish their goals.

Of course, this is easier said than done.

Chances are, my son will have an easier time achieving his dreams than my daughter, for various reasons. My daughter, like most girls and women, may have to fight harder for the exact same rights and opportunities. Thus, it’s my responsibility as a parent to make sure both of my children are feminists. My son will, I hope, recognize his privilege where it exists and strive to empower the women in his life. My daughter will, I hope, recognize that her sex and/or gender shouldn’t be seen as a weakness. She, too, will have it easier than many, and I hope she will also fight for those less empowered than her.

Feminism is often treated like it’s a dirty word, but ultimately, I think (hope?) most of us are feminists. All humans, male and female, of all colors, sizes, ethnicities, religions and anything else should be considered and treated as equals. I know that’s naive and far from how the world actually works, but all I can really account for is my house and our beliefs. Here, we are feminists and there’s no question that women are equal to men in all ways.

You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for unique feminist gift ideas for the women and men, children, and babies, on your shopping list. Below you’ll find more than 65 of my absolute favorite feminist gift ideas, many of which I’ve purchased for my loved ones this past year!

Well Behaved Women Seldom…

Well Behaved Women Hoop Art

Over the course of writing this post, I learned that one of my favorite quotes, “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” was said by neither Eleanor Roosevelt or Marilyn Monroe. Instead, it was first written by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich back in 1976, in an article she wrote about Puritan Funeral Services. (#themoreyouknow)

Purchase: Stitches of Anarchy (Etsy)

Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History

by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Synopsis: In 1976, in an obscure scholarly article, Ulrich wrote, “Well behaved women seldom make history.”  Today these words appear on t-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, greeting cards, and all sorts of Web sites and blogs.  Ulrich explains how that happened and what it means by looking back at women of the past who challenged the way history was written.  She ranges from the fifteenth-century writer Christine de Pizan, who wrote The Book of the City of Ladies, to the twentieth century’s Virginia Woolf, author of A Room of One’s Own.  Ulrich updates their attempts to reimagine female possibilities and looks at the women who didn’t try to make history but did.  And she concludes by showing how the 1970s activists who created “second-wave feminism” also created a renaissance in the study of history.

Black Lives Matter Necklace

Feminist Gift Ideas: Black Lives Matter Necklace

If feminism is the idea that all men and all women are created equal, then ALL women must include women of all different ethnicities, religions, and races. I don’t know how you can be a feminist and not support the idea that black lives matter just as much as everyone else’s.

Purchase: Squirrel vs Coyote (Etsy)

 

Girls Think of Everything

by Catherine Thimmesh

Their creations are some of the most enduring (the windshield wiper) and best loved (the chocolate chip cookie). What inspired these women, and just how did they turn their ideas into realities?

Features women inventors Ruth Wakefield, Mary Anderson, Stephanie Kwolek, Bette Nesmith Graham, Patsy O. Sherman, Ann Moore, Grace Murray Hopper, Margaret E. Knight, Jeanne Lee Crews, and Valerie L. Thomas, as well as young inventors ten-year-old Becky Schroeder and eleven-year-old Alexia Abernathy. Illustrated in vibrant collage by Caldecott Honor artist Melissa Sweet.

She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World

by Chelsea Clinton

Synopsis: Throughout American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what’s right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted.

She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small.

Purchase: Amazon

We Should All Be Feminists

The Women Who Made New York

by Julie Scelfo

Synopsis: Read any history of New York City and you will read about men. You will read about men who were political leaders and men who were activists and cultural tastemakers. These men have been lauded for generations for creating the most exciting and influential city in the world.

But that’s not the whole story.

The Women Who Made New York reveals the untold stories of the phenomenal women who made New York City the cultural epicenter of the world. Many were revolutionaries and activists, like Zora Neale Hurston and Audre Lorde. Others were icons and iconoclasts, like Fran Lebowitz and Grace Jones. There were also women who led quieter private lives but were just as influential, such as Emily Warren Roebling, who completed the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge when her engineer husband became too ill to work.

The Handmaid’s Tale

by Margaret Atwood

Synopsis: Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable.

Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now….

Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and literary tour de force.
