Feminism is not a new concept. This vital movement took centuries to develop and continues to grow today. Some records of early feminists date back to the Middle Ages, however, what we know as first-wave feminism began in the 19th century with the fight for women’s voting rights and education.
We’ve made some big strides since then but still have a long way to go. If you’re wondering how you can do your part, there are many ways to be a feminist! You might be an outspoken activist, a teacher, or a parent trying to raise your kids right.
But feminism isn’t just about the big moments in history or a few influential figures. It’s the little, consistent choices and everyday people that make a difference. This shows up in many different ways. Like the comments we make, the businesses we support, or even the games we play!
That’s why we’ve compiled the Best Feminist Board Games. Who says you can’t support the cause AND have fun? So grab your kids, friends, and fellow feminists for a game night with a message!
