“This project was created with the intention of advocating and upholding feminism in a creative way. Women empowerment, although quite evident today, still needs to be intensified and supported greatly by the youth in the Philippines. We still need to end rape culture as well as break the stereotypical view of women as the weaker sex. Feminism is not man-hating, and what is stated above is not the only definition of it. Feminism can or will also fight for equal treatment among all genders, sexualities, etc."
- Reign Gonzales, creator, designer, and owner of SMASH THE PATRIARCHY NOW
“The world isn’t getting any younger, but hopefully we are getting a little smarter. It’s time we start making sure that our day-to-day actions are looking out for Mother Nature – and that includes the products we consume. When I began Fabulously Feminist in 2013, I was already committed to establishing a greener studio practice. I have carried over that dedication to a line of guilt-free products that are as good for the planet as they are for your spirit."
- Callie Garp, the brains behind Fabously Feminist
“I was a Graphic Design major in art school, where I did my senior thesis on Riot Grrrl Zines, which kickstarted my entire making art for feminism deal. The art from my project gained so much popularity that I decided to open and Etsy shop, something I've always wanted to succeed at, and sell some on my zines. Making feminist based art was something that came so easily to me, because I had so much to say and to put into my own visual language.”
-Midge Blitz, owner of Modern Girl Blitz
“I became a feminist a few years ago. Realising that, though I am oppressed as a women, I am privileged in other ways, rewrote my definition of feminism. It now meant including and empowering all women, especially women who are oppressed by multiple systems. I extended this to include non-binary people shortly after.
These new goals I decided to pursue by opening an Etsy shop that featured empowering accessories designed to look dashing while smashing oppressive systems.”
