Feminism is all about equality of the sexes. And while your little one might not understand this concept quite yet, they can start demonstrating their values early on with these cute feminist onesies!
The onesie is a garment that was first introduced as women’s clothing in the 19th Century. It was also known as a union suit.
During the Golden Globes, many attendees wore black and Time’s Up pins to show their support for the movement against sexual harassment and inequality. Now, you and your baby can join in the activism with these feminist onesie shirts and other merch.
Some parents love to dress their babies in onesies with empowering messages, while others choose to wear clothes that celebrate their alma maters or favorite pop culture phenomenons. Still others, like Kesha Leets of Philadelphia, opt to put their daughters in onesies that scream “girl power” to let the world know they’re strong and powerful.
Regardless of your politics, there’s no denying that these feminist onesies are cute. And that’s a win for everyone. Just don’t forget the pacifiers. They’re gonna need them!
Many parents love to dress their children in onesies with a message, whether it is to pay tribute to a favorite TV show or a political movement. There is also a growing market for feminist onesies, which are designed to support women and girls. These bodysuits are a way to show support for the feminist movement while still being cute and comfortable.
The modern adult onesie was first introduced in 1998 by a company called JumpinJammerz, which began manufacturing lounge-wear for men and women. This garment was a popular choice for rappers and singers who wanted to keep warm while performing on stage. Its popularity grew, and other companies started producing them as well.
Despite the rising popularity of these feminist onesies, they are not yet available from major baby clothing brands. Instead, they are mostly made by small Etsy sellers and independent vendors. However, if enough people buy these onesies for their infants, the big baby brands might begin to produce them as well.
Often, baby onesies feature themes that pay tribute to parents’ alma maters, favorite pop culture phenomena or empowering messages of equality. While it’s not yet common to find feminist onesies from name brands, it is possible to purchase these onesie t-shirts and bodysuits on Etsy or Amazon. As these feminism-themed onesies continue to gain popularity, it is likely that big baby brands will follow suit.
