Today is International Women’s Day, where the message being championed is #PressforProgress


The official campaign website states “Individually, we're one drop but together we're an ocean. Commit to a "gender parity mindset" via progressive action. Let's all collaborate to accelerate gender parity, so our collective action powers equality worldwide.”

This past year has been particularly marked by women speaking up. From Women’s March in the United States and all over the world as a protest against Donald Trump’s presidency, the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote in the UK, to the Time’s Up movement against sexual harassment, voices are rising to call for gender equality. 

To celebrate this day, we've collated our favourite empowering quotes from inspiring, famous women. Scroll the gallery above to read them.

This week marks the 100 year anniversary of women first winning the vote in the UK. And while much has changed since 6 February 1918, the fact that there’s a plethora of feminist fashion and literature available and multiple women’s marches staged in recent years suggests the spirit of the suffragists is still very much alive. These women, unlike the radical suffragettes who were more militant and resorted to violence (Emily Davison died after walking out in front of King George V’s horse at the 1913 Epson Derby), campaigned to win the vote peacefully. The combination of tactics worked and these days women are campaigning for gender equality and protesting against issues like period poverty and sexual harassment in powerful ways.  


Besides donating money and joining marches, there are other ways to share your beliefs and solidarity with fellow women. We’d suggest reading up about the history of the suffragists and suffragettes, women's rights and feminism; and fashion wise, slogan t-shirts are probably the easiest way to share your thoughts as they’ll effortlessly go with what’s already in your wardrobe. There’s bound to be one that reflect your thoughts and you can discover the protest garment’s 20th century timeline and impact at an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum which opens today. Dior’s ‘We should all be feminists’ t-shirt, inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s essay and Ted talk, is arguably the most famous and the fashion girl choice, and the audio featured on Beyonce’s ‘Flawless’ track. The word and terms ‘feminist’ (which so loaded you may have to justify yourself to onlookers when wearing it), ‘girl power’ and ‘grl pwr’ feature on a range of stylish pieces and accessories too. We’d also recommend making the Spice Girls your current soundtrack, given their still very relevant #girlpower message, and you can add empowering quotes to your home decor.

Slogan T-shirts made their massive comeback last season and are still front and center on most fashion feeds. They are incredibly elegant yet nonchalant and therefore make for the ultimate model-off duty look. Take cues from the trendsetters that provided us with an array of layering styling tips in our gallery. Are you still hesitant to try the trend? Here are four reasons why you should give Slogan tees a styling go!



ICE-BREAKER 

You're bound to grab attention. Whether you like it or not, clothes say a lot about how we are let alone if we spell it out on our tops. The tee could easily be an icebreaker and topic of conversation between you and the guy standing in line for your morning chai latte? 

SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOU 

It's personal. Although slogan tees are a trend, hence not as personal, the message can be a reflection of your individual style and mind set. Whether it's a pun on feminism, a political statement, a funny random quote or ever a rocker tee. Slogan were, are and always will be quite personal. And there's nothing wrong with that. 

EASY TO STYLE 

They're quite easy to style and incorporate in literally any wardrobe. You can go for a girly look and tuck it inside a floor length skirt, paired with a GG belt and mules. It's the perfect addition if you want to tone down and make a classic look edgier. If you want to spice up your business attire, don a slogan tee under your check blazer and trousers. On the other hand you can go for the rocker look, or simply keep it casual with a luxe knit cardigan, vinyl leggings and ankle boots.

TRANSITIONAL WEATHER FRIENDLY 

Tees are the perfect way to go during transitional weather as you can layer up, or layer down according to your environment and occasion. And if you are going for a t-shirt this season, why not make it personal and sport one with a slogan? 

Can't wait to get your hands on a slogan t-shirt? Check out our edit of this season's best slogan tee picks!

Women have been wearing trousers for around a century. Largely due to increased responsibility after the war, we could finally take off our skirts. Feminism has been deemed one of the many words of the year this year on the back of #MeToo movement. I guess it comes as no surprise therefore that our trousers have got a little more powerful too. The side stripe is being thrown on luxe joggers and flares adding a little more structure to trousers. This look from #Topshop (image from their Instagram) is just to die for. Chic and fun and, well, powerful.

With temperatures rising ever so slightly, and the sun gracing us with its presence this morning we thought of going for something lighter. And what could be more breezy, light and yet so personal than a slogan tee? Slogan t-shirts made their massive comeback last season and during the SS17 shows specifically, last September. Fashion month provided us with an array of fashionistas who layered, styled and donned those slogan tees to a T! 


Here our main reasons why you should wear a slogan tee this Fall. 


ICE-BREAKER 


You're bound to grab attention. Whether you like it or not, clothes say a lot about how we are let alone if we spell it out on our tops. The tee could easily be an icebreaker and topic of conversation between you and the guy standing in line for your morning chai latte? 


SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOU


It's personal. Although slogan tees are a trend, hence not as personal, the message can be a reflection of your individual style and mind set. Whether it's a pun on feminism, a political statement, a funny random quote or ever a rocker tee. Slogan were, are and always will be quite personal. And there's nothing wrong with that. 


EASY TO STYLE 



They're quite easy to style and incorporate in literally any wardrobe. You can go for a girly look and tuck it inside a floor length skirt, paired with a GG belt and mules.

On the other hand you can go for the rocker look, or simply keep it casual with a luxe knit cardigan, vinyl leggings and ankle boots.


TRANSITIONAL WEATHER FRIENDLY 


Fits this weather. If the weather hasn't made up it's mind why should you? Tees are the perfect way to go during transitional weather as you can layer up, or layer down according to your environment and occasion. And if you are going for a t-shirt this season, why not make it personal and sport one with a slogan?

You’ve seen it everywhere. On your favourite celebrities, on bags, on shoes, in drinks, and of course on your Instagram feed. We’re talking about Millennial pink, of course! Or Tumblr Pink and Scandi Pink, as you may have heard it being called.


The origins of this colour craze are debated but a few examples truly gave shape to it, like the insides of the Grand Budapest Hotel or the release of the rose gold iPhone.

Either way, Millennial Pink isn’t 100% defined. It goes from skin tone, to pale pink, to salmon coloured… But that’s because it’s more of a general movement than a specific colour.

The obsession over Millennial Pink can be seen as a return to feminism but in a less girly and traditional way. In fact, as you might have seen, the colour is completely androgynous, with many brands using the shade for both their male and female collections. 

And you might expect it to go away soon given that it’s already been around for a while but you’d be mistaken, because Millennial Pink is here to stay. And coincidentally, it’s the perfect shade to add to your summer wardrobe!

So click through our gallery to see inspirational images and then scroll down to shop our selection of pieces.

Dior has just released images of its AW17 collection (a little early you might think, and we agree) for a campaign with a noticeably more relaxed tone than usual. 


The black-and-white shoot features Jennifer Lawrence with a laid-back look in a very casual decor. She is wearing the statement “We should all the feminists” t-shirt with a blazer, jeans and ballet flats.

In fact, ever since Chiuri joined Dior as it’s first female artistic director a few months ago, the brand seems to have a brand new focus. Their new collections target younger generations and they are making feminism an integral part of their vision.

The choice to feature Jennifer Lawrence is actually a culmination of a few very obvious feminist moves. We are of course talking about their statement t-shirt which came out last season, but also about Dior’s #thewomenbehindmydress campaign, which put their female workers in the spotlight. So the decision to feature Jennifer Lawrence, such a well-known advocate for feminism, feels perfectly right.

Now, scroll down to shop our picks of the label’s most stylish pieces.

The Victoria's Secret Show is an event I put in my calendar every year, like so many other women around the globe, I'm fascinated. And to a degree, I get this intense interest- I love seeing beautiful women, owning their sexuality and strutting their stuff in jewel incrusted underwear. But, what I don't understand, is why it's Victoria's Secret that have this coveted affair.


Think about it, what is the big deal with VS? The actual underwear they sell is high-street, basic and kind of 'meh'. If a brand like Agent Provocateur put on a show of a similar ilk, it would make far more sense- because they are a high-end, catwalk worthy brand. Plus, you can't actually buy any of the really amazing bras from the VS show- their actual stores don't stock such creative masterpieces, instead you'll find what looks like a 16 year old's brain fart. Why and when did wearing hot pink underwear become a thing? 

On top of this, Victoria's Secret has had a pretty sordid past. There was the whole getting prisoners to sew their lingerie f*ck up. Yup, you read that right- it's not just a plot line in Orange is the New Black. 

However, many critiques of the show find it sexist, and I've got to disagree. Because the VS show is not made for the male gaze or male pleasure, it's made for teenage girls. Think about it- if it was a purely sexist pursuit of objectifying the female form, then wouldn't it be a little more *sexy*? Don't get me wrong, these models ooze sex appeal, but the show isn't sexual. It's full of disney princess poses, fun and light hearted energy and upbeat pop music. 

But since this is the case, it makes it even more confusing- it's not a fashion show, it's not couture, it's not a sex show. It's not even a very good commercial marketing ploy, because the brand has been on a downwards spiral- maybe because no one wants pink, sparkly push up bras anymore? Just a thought. It's some weird medley that wouldn't seem out of place in a parallel universe, black mirror style. 

And yet, despite the latter reasoning, I'm still obsessed. I still care. My heart burst at Bella walking past Abel, and I cooed at Jasmine in the 'Fantasy Bra', and cheered at Irina strutting her stuff while pregnant. I love that it's extravagant, and that the models seem like genuine friends. 

So, maybe that's why we are all so engrossed, because it's nice to see women fulfil their life long dreams, be amazing friends and champion each other...

Mila Kunis, a powerhouse of talent and intelligence, has written an open letter, published on A Plus responding to the sexism she's faced in her industry, and how she's taking a stand. 

She is "done compromising; even more so, I'm done with being compromised", and so are we.

Read the open letter below...

" 'You'll never work in this town again.' A cliché to be sure, but also what a producer threatened when I refused to pose semi-naked on the cover of a men's magazine to promote our film. I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. "I will never work in this town again?" I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said "no." And guess what? The world didn't end. The film made a lot of money and I did work in this town again, and again, and again. What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace. 

It's what we are conditioned to believe — that if we speak up, our livelihoods will be threatened; that standing our ground will lead to our demise. We don't want to be kicked out of the sandbox for being a "bitch." So we compromise our integrity for the sake of maintaining the status quo and hope that change is coming. 

But change is not coming fast enough to help my friends, my peers, or even our children. In fact, a recent study by the American Association of University Women shows that the pay gap is closing at such a slow rate that it will be 136 years before women are paid equally to men. 136 years. And the pay gap is but one clear quantification of the acute undervaluing of the contributions of women in the workplace. 

Throughout my career, there have been moments when I have been insulted, sidelined, paid less, creatively ignored, and otherwise diminished based on my gender. And always, I tried to give people the benefit of the doubt; maybe they knew more, maybe they had more experience, maybe there was something I was missing. I taught myself that to succeed as a woman in this industry I had to play by the rules of the boy's club. But the older I got and the longer I worked in this industry, the more I realized that it's bullshit! And, worse, that I was complicit in allowing it to happen. 

So, I started my own club. I formed a production company with three amazing women. We have been hustling to develop quality television shows with unique voices and perspectives. Since our inception, we have been lucky enough to partner with incredible producers, male and female, who have treated us as true equals and partners. Recently, we signed on to partner with an influential male producer on a project that would shine a light on an important social issue — ironically — inclusivity and our shared human experience. 

In the process of pitching this show to a major network, the typical follow-up emails were sent to executives at this network. In this email chain, this producer chose to email the following: 
 
"And Mila is a mega star. One of biggest actors in Hollywood and soon to be Ashton's wife and baby momma!!!" 

This is the entirety of his email. Factual inaccuracies aside, he reduced my value to nothing more than my relationship to a successful man and my ability to bear children. It ignored my (and my team's) significant creative and logistical contributions. 

We withdrew our involvement in the project. 

 Yes, it is only one small comment. But it's these very comments that women deal with day inand day out in offices, on calls, and in emails — microaggressions that devalue the contributions and worth of hard-working women. 

Subtle gender bias is oftentimes nearly imperceptible, and even wholly undetectable to those who share the bias. It became clear in later emails from this producer that he was totally unaware of why his words were so appalling. What he characterized as a "lighthearted" comment was actually deeply undermining to my contributions and ability to be taken seriously as a creative partner. 

I have no interest in vilifying this man. Blind gender biases are embedded in every facet of our life. They are reinforced by our educational institutions: men dominate the figures we study in history, the luminaries of math and science and technology about whom we learn, and the authors of political discourse we are taught to revere. We are inundated with tales of male superiority that blind us to the architecture of our own relationships. The very word "blind" informs us of everything. No one gets upset when a blind person bumps into a wall, but the wall does not cease to yield force. 

I'm done compromising; even more so, I'm done with being compromised. So from this point forward, when I am confronted with one of these comments, subtle or overt, I will address them head on; I will stop in the moment and do my best to educate. I cannot guarantee that my objections will be taken to heart, but at least now I am part of creating an environment where there is the opportunity for growth. And if my comments fall on deaf ears, I will choose to walk away. 

If this is happening to me, it is happening more aggressively to women everywhere. I am fortunate that I have reached a place that I can stop compromising and stand my ground, without fearing how I will put food on my table. I am also fortunate that I have the platform to talk about this experience in the hope of bringing one more voice to the conversation so that women in the workplace feel a little less alone and more able to push back for themselves. 

I will work in this town again, but I will not work with you."

If you've been on any social media in the past week, you know about the latest development in Kardashian news. No, it's not nude Insta pics from Kim, nor is it more family drama between Khloe and Kylie. This time, it was something much scarier: a robbery! Poor Kim was taking a nap in her Paris apartment when masked attackers burst in, tied her up, and stole over $10 million worth of her jewelry- including her 4 million dollar engagement ring. 


Kim has been conspicuously absent from social media since the robbery. She's clearly suffering through post-traumatic stress: she used to dress up in meticulous designer outfits and strut the sidewalks for the paparazzi - but in the past weeks, she has only ventured outside wearing baggy sweatpants, sunglasses and hats to disguise her face, and has tried to hide from the media. 

Some people are taking the opportunity to laugh at her misfortune, taking to Twitter and Insta to post horrible things at her, like "@KimKardashian should have gone the whole hog and finished her off aswell." -@alexmorley1 and "@KimKardashian Glad you were robbed...You deserved it. What a slutty c*nt." -@daniel_malice. No wonder she's trying to avoid the spotlight! These pathetic people are celebrating her misfortune, calling her slurs, and wishing her death - just for being an annoying celebrity! It's obvious that @alexmorely1 and @daniel_malice have a problem with women. Her sex life has nothing to do with her robbery, and calling her slutty just reveals this troll's own insecurities. 

Although I'm not a fan of the Kardashian clan, I don't wish Kim harm. The robbery isn't funny. The Kardashians are annoying, sure, but they don't deserve to be terrorized. Nobody does. Besides that, it's pathetic to tweet at celebrities (who will never read your tweets), and it's terrible to spend your own time and mental energy on hatred. These malicious haters need to go outside and live their own lives, instead of hiding behind the internet and obsessing over their enemies. 

The worst part about the robbery was not the malicious Twitter trolls' comments, but the awful comments from Karl Lagerfeld - who is supposedly Kim's friend! The respected fashion designer weighed in on the robbery, announcing " If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the Net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near your room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.” What a callous *sshole! 

Karl is "victim-blaming" - which we often hear about in cases of sexual assault. Everywhere we turn, we hear people blaming women for being attacked: for what they were wearing, where they were walking, or what they were drinking. It's incredibly important to push back against those people! It is NEVER your fault for being victimized by others. I'll repeat that for those of you in the back: IT IS NEVER YOUR FAULT IF YOU ARE ATTACKED. If Karl is Kim's friend, why does he say "you cannot display your wealth"? Why not "you cannot break into someone's house and hold them at gunpoint"? Why is he blaming Kim for her attack, and not even mentioning the attackers? 

Hypocritically, Karl has an Instagram himself, and regularly posts pictures of himself wearing clothing and accessories worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Yet he's ultra-quick to pick on Kim for doing THE EXACT SAME THING. If he ever gets robbed, is he going to say it's his own fault? Doubtful. 

It must be even more upsetting for Kim, after a life-threatening experience, to have Karl, someone she thought was a friend, turn catty and stab her in the back. She can't be too surprised though, because Karl has a history of saying terrible things. Remember when he called Adele fat, and called Pippa Middleton ugly? For some reason, Karl feels compelled to blab on about women's appearance, as if he has the right. Here's hoping that Kim keeps her head up, and returns to her usual self soon!
