From the looks of it, people are happy to express themselves and wear shirts that empower them. No one is worried about what other people will think when they're wearing a shirt with 'vulgar' words on it.

These shirts also open up a discussion about empowerment. What is empowerment and can it really be expressed through wearing (or not) wearing clothes? I think it can. For so long women have been silenced. Now, we are pushing back and demanding to be heard - whether it's through their actions like the #MeToo movement,  running for office or simply through fashion. As long as you're not hurting anyone or being racist or homophobic, you should be able to wear whatever you want!
