Is a Feminist T-Shirt Going to Change the World?
When I saw Maxine Medina open a fashion show earlier this month with a shirt that said “Vive La Femme,” it was official that the feminist shirt was everywhere.
The runways are resounding what the streets have been saying, just look at the latest from Dior, Stella McCartney, and Prabal Gurung. In an interview with W Magazine, Dior’s new creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, pointed out that “Feminine is about being a woman, no? I thought to myself: if Dior is about femininity, then it is about women. And not about what it was to be a woman 50 years ago, but to be a woman today.” Hence, she sent down on the runway a woman in a “We Should All Be Feminists” shirt and boho-inspired skirt, someone who could be found of any point of the planet.
