But Etsy’s got knockoffs if you can’t pay full price for J.Law’s feminist tee supporting Rihanna’s charity
Girl power is getting expensive.
Jennifer Lawrence rocks a $710 “We Should All Be Feminists” t-shirt for Dior’s Fall 2017 campaign.

That’s pretty steep for a cotton/linen blend crewneck stamped with a quote from Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s 2014 essay – although Dior is donating a portion of the proceeds from each sale to Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, which helps fund education, health and emergency response programs around the world. The charity’s philanthropic efforts include a global scholarship program, as well as handing out micro grants and running a center for oncology in the singer’s Barbados homeland.
The shirt is already sold out on the Saks Fifth Avenue website. Shoppers, particularly Millennials, like to splurge toward a cause. A recent survey found that people between the ages of 18 and 34 were more inclined to buy products from a company that contributes to charity, or to recommend the business to a friend. [And here’s a list of feel-good indulgences.} Plus, the chichi feminist tee was helmed by fashion industry boss Maria Grazia Chiuri, who’s Dior’s first-ever female artistic director.
Lawrence has long adored Dior. Thanks to her reported $15 million three-year contract with them, the brand has dressed the “Hunger Games” star on red carpets for years – including the dress she tripped on stage in while accepting the 2013 Best Actress Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook.”
But fear not, broke fashionistas: You can let your feminist flag fly in almost the exact same shirt for under $20 on Etsy. There are dozens of more affordable versions on the online marketplace that sport the exact same quote, and in similar fonts, for as low as $13.99.
