It’s the most wonderful day of the year. Birds are chirping, the patriarchy is trembling, and across the globe, women are supporting women. Get involved this #IWD2017. We'll show you how…
1. It’s as easy as getting around one another.
Your girl started a side business? Buy her pottery! Your bestie posted a real Instagram about her feelings and struggles? Comment with some love. Your coworker got a promotion? Buy that girl a drink. It’s about building up, not tearing down.
2. Or reading a book.
Tote a good book around like a trophy… Broaden your horizons and use that knowledge as a beacon for others.
Top picks: I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai, is her story of standing up for a right to education in Pakistan and surviving backlash from the violent patriarchy. What Will It Take To Make A Woman President? by Marianne Schnall, is the ultimate interview and essay encouragement you need. Even Beyoncé said, “They will inspire you to become a better leader.”
3. And showing your appreciation.
Ever heard the term, “a little goes a long way”? In the time it takes to whisper-read “women’s economic empowerment”, you can definitely think of some strong women who have helped you out along the way.
Speaking of, did you know you can donate on her behalf? That way, every step taken to empower women with the independence of employment will be in her honor. (Well, that’s cool.)
4. You can shop for change, too.
Now, more than ever, retailers are transparent about their behind-the-scenes so get alongside some badass lady-led organizations who are actively helping women.
Shop products that are designed by women, made for women and benefit women around the world.
