March is the month to uplift and empower women around the world. We know one of the best ways to support women is to buy from brands putting in the work to help change and shape the lives of women all over the world.
Goodfind has curated this list of five remarkable female-owned brands that are doing just that!
What is International Women’s Day and why do we celebrate it?
International Women's Day (IWD) is a global celebration of women's social, economic, cultural and political achievements which is celebrated every year on March 8th. IWD officially started in 1911 and remains an important moment for working to advance women's equality.
This year the movement's theme is called #EmbraceEquity. The campaign aims to open the space for important conversations on why equal opportunities aren't enough and why equality isn't always fair. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
Check out these five outstanding female-owned brands:
Asan is a social enterprise that is eradicating period poverty and enabling millions of women and girls to go to school and work on their period. One Asan cup averts the waste of 2,500 pads and tampons! And finally the best bit: for every Asan cup you buy, they donate one for free to a woman or girl in rural India who can't afford safe period care.
If you fancy making the switch to Asan period products, they currently have 20% off + free shipping with code: WOMENSDAY.
