WearBU Blog: Embracing Peoplehood, Identity & Community
Women have been many things down through the centuries. They have been helpmates, wives, lovers, sisters, mothers, chattels, slaves, and, yes, toys. “Toy” is not usually the woman’s choice as a role, but some clothing styles tend to play up this role, along with the emphasis on having a new, in-style wardrobe each year.
Women are not toys. You can prove it by wearing clothing that shows that you understand the role of the women and men who labored to create them. More than that, you can support women’s sustainable cottage industries. Economics writers and professors will tell you that to change the world, you should support women.
