About Feminist Style
Consent-Themed UnderwearAt Feminist Style, we believe that having consent-themed underwear out in the market, as actual alternatives to underwear with sexually objectifying slogans (e.g. "ready for anything", "take me home", "unwrap me") or teach that "no" is a way to flirt (e.g. "no peeking"), will serve as a small step to shifting the culture around consent.
Our designs aren’t meant to speak for the wearer, and they won’t stop rapists, but they may serve as sort of a fun way to initiate conversations about boundaries and what each person is or is not comfortable with. The main goal is to help shift the culture from one that encourages sexual objectification to one that promotes consent education. In line with that goal, there is an important reminder on all of our underwear tags:
