How Could Fashion Empower Women
Women from the beginning of time were dominated by men, their elders and society; they follow orders on what to do, what to say and even what to wear. In reality, there is no inclusivity on freedom but women are victims chained to these standards while all aspects of life has equal representation.
Generation of the new women and fashion
In the recent generation, women put their foot down and demanded equal places for all. For years, struggles continue and victory seems to be on the side women. Name an industry without women; they are in tech, finance, politics and most of all fashion.
Fashion has the ability through clothes to women from inside out. Women lead the way showing that gender fashion style empowerment is based on specific personal choices. In real life, any woman can dress like a man but this freedom is restricted by the women’s wrardrobe design.
