There may be only one thing Harry Styles feels more strongly about than Gucci (and poutine), and it's the — for some, apparently far-fetched — belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. Over the years, Styles has been a vocal advocate for organizations like HeforShe, Emma Watson's U.N. gender equality initiative, and has spent much of his recent promotional tour defending the young women that make up a significant portion of his fan base. 

And on Wednesday, Styles was photographed wearing a white T-shirt that reads "Women are smarter." in a simple black typeface across the chest. The good people at MTV and Teen Vogue quickly discovered that the tee comes via T-shirt brand Itsasickness, which prints locally and donates a portion of its proceeds to Planned Parenthood. 

According to Itsasickness, its "Women are smarter." campaign was inspired by the Women's March on Washington this past January; Styles's support for the event on Twitter elicited mixed reviews. "The words on our [T-shirt] have nothing to do with women being smarter than men," the brand writes on its site. "They have everything to do with lending a voice and advocating, in our own sick way, for policies relating to equal pay and healthcare."

The shirt is still available for purchase for $100, a cool $610 cheaper than Dior's now-infamous "We Should All Be Feminists" tee. 

Meanwhile, Styles encouraged his U.K. followers to vote in their nation's general election on Thursday. Perhaps he'll be wearing this shirt to the polls.
