This Wednesday, March 8 is International Women's Day. As a women-owned and operated business (we have some great guys on our team, too!) it is our goal to uplift and celebrate women in all of their strong, beautiful, brilliant forms. We hope to consistently promote women's equality—meaning equal pay and treatment, and access to health, economic, and social resources—and to partner with brands and businesses with the same ethos.
As a part of the women's day celebrations this year, the organization behind the Women's March on Washington is coordinating A Day Without A Woman. Here's the idea:
Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:
-Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
-Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
-Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman
The purpose of the "strike" is to highlight the socio-economic importance of women as workers and consumers, and to call attention to the discrimination and unfair bias that women and gender nonconforming people face.
As a business for women and by women, we'll be staying open and inviting anyone taking the day off to come by the store, say hello, and hang out in a gender-positive, welcoming atmosphere. We'll provide some sips and snacks, as well as pre-stamped postcards if you'd like to contact any of your elected officials (or even just to say an old-school hello to one of your girlfriends!).
Looking forward to seeing you on this day and every day. Feel free to contact the store for further details.
