There’s nothing better than a barnstorming classic when you need to smash the patriarchy, and there’s nothing better than putting that classic in a coordinating tote when you’re done. These five feminist tote bags, and the books that inspired them, offer you the opportunity to take down the system. And look pretty damn good when you do it.
It’s time to read, tote, revolt.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë is such a powerful book. It aches to be read and heard, and this quote kind of sums it up in one. Read, represent. And if you’re near a moor, go and run around it.
This is a quote from From A Land Where Other People Live by Audre Lorde and it kind of stopped me in my tracks. This is a powerful, potent, and fierce sentiment to have anywhere in your life, let alone on a feminist tote bag.
Two words, that’s all, and yet this bag is one of the loudest out there. This fierce affirmation of self comes from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.
I’m fairly sure that any list of feminist tote bags has to have a Hermione reference in it. I’m also fairly that I don’t need to tell you what series this is from, but just in case I do…
(It’s Harry Potter, come on…)
