International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
As a female-run business, we have partnered with the wonderful One Girl charity to donate $5 from every sale on International Women’s Day (Sunday 8th March). One Girl harnesses the power of education to drive change for girls and their communities.
Imagine a world where all girls have access to quality education. A world where all girls — no matter where they are born or how much money they have — enjoy the same rights and opportunities as boys. A world where every girl has the chance to be the best she can be. We believe we can create this world using the power of education. Because educating girls is the number one way to fight climate change, to reduce poverty, and to create a fair and sustainable planet! When you educate a girl, everything changes.
We recently sat down with Bronwyn McCahon (former Editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and Dolly magazines and co-founder of PLAY etc) and Sophie Cooper (Founder of Walnut Melbourne) to discuss what International Women’s Day means to them and the importance of empowering young women.
