FCKH8 put together this amazing video of little girls summing up the women’s equality movement more succinctly than any grown-up ever could. After all, it’s their future we’re so worried about, right? The video highlights their T-shirt fundraiser, which goes toward supporting anti-sexism organizations and funding FCKH8 to keep pushing activist causes forward. I am head over heels for this one.
