As seen in Bead & Reel: 10 Party Dresses For Feminists

erriam-Webster may disagree, but I think feminism is a verb.

Feminism doesn't mean disapproving of the wage gap; it means buying fair trade, since over 80% of garment workers are women, and most are making less than $3 per day.

Feminism doesn't mean feeling angry about the constant verbal and physical harassment of women; it means choosing vegan textiles to take a stance against entitlement to others bodies.
