Feminists do wear pink – and Monki

28 Nov, 2018

This December, Monki will launch the book Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies), curated by London-based writer and activist Scarlett Curtis, in selected stores and online. For the Swedish fashion brand, this is in line with their ongoing work to provide female talent with a platform to speak up about topics close to their hearts.

“Empowering women is the driving force behind everything we do at Monki and has been from the beginning. Being able to offer a book to our community that champions those very values of female empowerment, sisterhood and support feels great.”

Jennie Dahlin Hansson, Managing Director at Monki.

Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies) is a collection of essays curated by writer and activist Scarlett Curtis. With writings by Adwoa Aboah, Jameela Jamil and Monki collaborator Elyse Fox, the book explores what it means to be a woman today from every point of view.

“I am so excited to be working with Monki. The goal of the book was always to share the feminist message with as many people as possible and with Monki, we have found the perfect partner to do so. Their ongoing efforts towards lifting up the voices of those who are so often marginalised is a beautiful and refreshing light and one we need many more of” says Scarlett Curtis.

Monki will also offer their community a chance to meet Scarlett Curtis in person during a live reading and book signing session at the Carnaby Street store on 6 December.
