- Friday, March 8, 2019, is International Women's Day.
- Among the many ways to support and lift women up today (and every other day of the year), you can shop at female-founded retail companies.
- The 22 startups below make products that are designed to improve the lives of women.
- On International Women's Day, many are donating a portion of proceeds to non-profits dedicating to advancing the social and economic positions of women.
Today is International Women's Day (IWD), a day to both celebrate the social, economic, political, and cultural achievements of women and continue the push towards women's equality. In the business world, women are founding companies at record rates. According to the National Women's Business Council, their businesses employ over 8 million workers and generate over $1.4 trillion in revenue.
They still only comprise 36% of the country's businesses and there's a lot of progress to be made. However, as part of a team that has its finger on the pulse of up-and-coming consumer brands, I have to say we're certainly witnessing a wave of female entrepreneurship that provides inspiration and hope for the road ahead.
These female-founded startups should always be on your radar for the innovative products and services they offer, but especially today on IWD as many of these brands are putting forth powerful initiatives and campaigns to empower and support other women.
