At Fred and Far, every day is the right day for celebrating women. But March is an especially powerful time for us, because it’s not only Women’s History Month, it’s also International Women’s Day on March 8th. We invite you to join us in celebrating yourself and the women in your life extra hard this month and setting the tone for a transformative 2018.
Women’s History Month started as Women’s History Week back in 1982 (which was clearly not enough). Since 1985, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have each issued proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. From Susan B. Anthony, who fought not only for women’s right to vote, but also for the abolition of slavery, to Malala Yousafzai, who didn’t let the Taliban’s attempt to assassinate her when she was only 15 stop her fight for girls’ right to education, women have continually risen up to transform the world for the better. Just this year, we saw the profound impact a woman could make on our everyday lives, as best exemplified by the global conversation and movement #MeToo, created by Tarana Burke.
When we launched Fred and Far, our mission was simple: to create a self love movement that empowers women to choose themselves, and thus transform their lives and the world’s around them. So in honor of this most special month, we’re running a promotion on our Babe with the Power Collection, which is designed to evoke and represent the power within all of us to be changemakers on the most micro and macro levels.
Our Babe with the Power Collection has made some powerful rounds. From hundreds of women wearing it at The Girlboss Rally and Women’s March, to individual women wearing it to power up for a first date or big presentation, this collection is one that showcases your inner strength on the outside.
