Today, on International Women's Day, we’re proud to celebrate the achievements of women from all walks of life. As a woman-owned and run business employing only women in our studio, we strive everyday to uplift women around the world with our designs. Our clothes are meant to make you feel happy, strong and beautiful because that’s what all women deserve. We believe strongly that by supporting one another, we can create a more inclusive and equitable world.
Here are some simple ways to support the women in your life today and everyday.
Recognize Their Achievements
Whether it's a friend, family member, or a public figure, take the time to recognize and shout about the accomplishments of the women around you. This can be as simple as sending a message of congratulations on getting a new job or buying a house, or sharing their success on social media. By doing so, you not only boost their confidence but also inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
Mentor Other Women
As women, we face unique challenges in our personal and professional lives, and having a mentor who can offer guidance and support can make a significant difference. We know firsthand how important it is to have women as role models and why it’s important to pass on the knowledge we’ve gained. Supporting other women can help build a sense of community while also creating opportunities for collaboration and networking.
Challenge Gender Bias and Inequality
From the gender pay gap to the lack of representation in leadership roles, women continue to face barriers to equality. We won’t stand for it. We have a voice and while it’s daunting, it’s important that we use it for the issues that matter. By challenging biases and advocating for change, we can create a more safe and inclusive world for women.
Support Women-Owned Businesses
By choosing to buy from women-owned businesses, we can not only support their economic growth but also promote gender equality in the business world. Additionally, supporting women-owned businesses can lead to a more diverse range of products and services in the market.
Don’t forget how amazing you are — you matter! Express yourself through all the colors, shapes, and emotions you feel and you’ll empower other women to do the same. Take up space. Be loud. Remember that you belong in the room, too. While we love the creativity and beauty behind fashion, our aim is to make women feel like they can express their true selves through what they wear. We hope to inspire you in the same way that you inspire us.
International Women's Day is just a reminder of the importance of empowering and celebrating women — something that we should do throughout the year. Keep your head held high and encourage other women to do the same. By supporting each other, we’re working together to create a better future for all women. Happy International Women's Day!
