The only thing better than going on a shopping spree is going on a shopping spree that also just so happens to do a lot of good for womenkind. That's why women-run businesses should become your go-tos for finding gifts, necessities, and treats for yourself. When you shop small, you help support independent business owners to help them continue what they love doing the most—supplying amazing, unique goods that oftentimes support different charities, ideologies, or individual artisans.

Shopping with a feminist frame of mind doesn't mean exclusively buying T-shirts with the phrase "girl power" emblazoned on them (although that can be a part of it). It's more so about buying ethically made and designed goods, and putting your money where your mind is. These 10 online shops are not only backed by an awesomely feminist attitude, but they also stock some of the coolest, most unique wares around.

Otherwild

This Los Angeles-based shop made headlines in December when Cara Delevingne copied one of its shirt designs, based on a shirt pictured in a 1975 photo by Liza Cowan, after having received an Otherwild shirt from her girlfriend Annie Clark. Controversy aside, this curated shop and community center offers everything from queer and feminist literature to small batch apothecary serums and oils to women-made ceramics, art, and clothing. It also offers graphic design services, as well as in-store tarot workshops.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.
