Meet the young girl proving that the future of feminism is going strong
Daisy Edmonds blasts Tesco for shitty gendered clothing
At age eight, Daisy Edmonds can already recognize the bias behind boys’ and girls’ clothing. Upon visiting a supermarket to buy some new shirts she becomes so enraged with the way gender plays into fashion, that her mom ends up videotaping her.
She surveys the girls’ shirts that say things like, “Hey,” “Beautiful,” and “I feel fabulous.” While the boys’ shirts say things like, “Think outside the box,” and “Hero.”
“Everyone thinks girls should just be pretty and boys should just be adventurous,” she says. “I think that’s wrong.”
How is it that this girls know at age eight what so may of us are still grappling with today? She continues by questioning the gendering of clothing to begin with. This eight-year-old wants to know why boys get to think outside of the box and go on their adventures – why they get to let nothing stop them – while she has to wear a shirt that says “Hey.”
