Today is the day we celebrate linking arms with women around the world to overcome obstacles and create opportunity together! Our company is made up of women from all backgrounds, employed both locally and globally, which is what makes International Women’s Day especially important to us as a time to motivate and encourage each other.
Women around the world have been celebrating this day for 109 years! It started in 1908 when 15,000 women marched through New York City protesting for better working conditions and voting rights. Over 100 years later we can celebrate the progress that has been made while continuing to fight for women's rights, such as equal pay, which is still at an alarming discrepancy. There is no better time than now to join together and continue the cause that was started long ago.
International Women’s Day is a day to recognize the powerful stories of women and to see where we’re determined to go next. At FASHIONABLE, we see employing women as a powerful movement. Women have been proven to be the backbone of restoring communities and the key to battling poverty. So with your help, we work to give opportunity to women where there is often little, and then they effect change.
