Why you should care?Women and girls represent half of the world’s population. With women’s history, we need to shine a light on causes that have made a positive impact in our lives. So, think eco-consciously, giveback-consciously and impact-consciously with your purchases!

Achieving equity for both women and girls is a work in progress. Now, more than ever, is the time to shine the spotlight on women’s achievements and recognize the on-going issues that have been pressuring women for centuries. Together, women have worked to advance equal pay and abortion rights, take pressing social issues to the streets, and make history with the first female Vice President in Office.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made life challenging for all people. But, during these difficult times, it has also created new opportunities for women to combine forces, make our mark, and change history!
It is important to recognize gender equality as a “fundamental human right.” The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 (UNSDG) stresses advancing gender equality in all aspects of society. The United Nations (UN) help set global goals to make progress towards a healthier world.
According to the United Nations, “Women are not only the hardest hit by this pandemic, they are also the backbone of recovery in communities. Putting women and girls at the centre of economies will fundamentally drive better and more sustainable development outcomes for all, support a more rapid recovery, and place the world back on a footing to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.”
Unfortunately, only 28% of women hold managerial positions worldwide, at a time when women make up half of the world’s population. This means many challenges still remain with regards to women’s underrepresentation, sexual violence, and discriminatory laws and social norms. All of which have intensified due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although there’s been improvement over the past few decades, women and girls continue to face inequalities and prejudices in their everyday lives.
Across all sectors, women continue to fight for equitable rights to living a respectable life. Although you may understand personally about the detailed issues, it’s important to maintain our spotlight on this important goal throughout the year, and not just during Women’s History Month. Dig into the many activities that help each of us better understand what’s at stake below. Some are serious and others are entertaining, but we find that when we continue to self-educate ourselves, we are ready for those moments that arise unexpectedly, so that each of us can take a stand or speak out.
