As we approach International Women’s Day (IWD) this Friday, March 8th, together with the United Nations, we ask you to remember that “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women.” Standing for “Global, Local, Everywhere,” IWD remembers that over time and distance, the equal rights of women have progressed.
On Friday, we will celebrate the remarkable achievements of women everywhere, while remaining vigilant for further sustainable change because there is a global momentum for championing women’s equality. Each year, around the world, thousands of events occur not just on this day, but throughout the month to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organizations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media all come together to celebrate this day.
Perfectly timed with the relaunch of our Because I am a Girl Bangle, we hope that women everywhere will wear this bangle on this day and think of the potential impact that each one of us has in making a progressive change. No matter how small, each of us has the ability to make a difference when we come together. Why? Because we are women; we are girls.
The Because I am a Girl Expandable Wire Bangle is $28 and is available in Russian Gold and Russian Silver. Part of the Charity By Design Collection, throughout 2013, 20% of all sales, with a minimum donation of $5,000, from the Because I am a Girl Charm will go to Plan International USA’s Because I am a Girl initiative — a movement to lift four million girls in the developing world out of poverty.
