A Shirt That Pays Rightful Homage To One Of The Strongest Women On Television

The importance of strong women on television should not go unnoticed. They may be fictional, but their impact on our culture is still monumental, and particularly when they play powerful and central roles. Oftentimes, these characters make the prospect of living in a “woman’s world” seem possible and actually attainable. Played by Taraji P. Henson, Cookie—the proud, foul-mouthed, inextinguishable, and assertive wife of Lucious Lyon on FOX’s Empire—is one such fictional feminist figure. And her rightful authority is captured impeccably on this t-shirt. Standing in the forefront and in the spotlight, shrouding her husband and her three sons who are depicted as mere shadows, Cookie is the embodiment of “a woman’s world.”
