International Women’s Day is here, and what better way to to mark the occasion than by supporting women-owned brands?
With its origins as a socialist movement in the early 1900s, IWD is a celebration of the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women. This year’s theme, “Break the Bias,” calls on us all to “imagine a gender equal world.” In Canada and internationally, this dream can feel out of reach.
