International Women’s Day (IWD) might have been born from a strike demanding better working conditions, but in the hundred-plus years since, it’s officially a global revolution.
While there are zillions of amazing posts celebrating women on social media and trending hashtags #IWD2020, here’s what you can do to make a lasting global impact.
This International Women’s Day, renowned makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has collaborated with Net-A-Porter this to design a limited-edition THE MAGIC WITHIN T-shirt to raise awareness and funds for Women for Women International.
Inspired by her unerring belief in THE MAGIC WITHIN women — the POWER, COURAGE AND HOPE in us all — 100% of profits from Charlotte’s T-shirt will further benefit Women for Women International.
“To me, International Women’s Day means celebrating, empowering and encouraging all of the remarkable women in our lives!! I always say, WOMEN INSPIRE WOMEN and it is incredibly important to surround yourself with a magical matrix of powerful, positive women who inspire you to reach for the stars, DARE TO DREAM IT, DARE TO BELIEVE IT and DARE TO DO IT!!!I’m inspired by women every day and I truly believe there’s a magic in us all! Whether it’s my endlessly supportive and forever glamourous mother Patsy who has always given me great advice, my creative sister Leah, or my brilliant CEO Demetra.
This year, I want to remind everyone to always have self-belief, harness your unique power and channel THE MAGIC WITHIN, a feeling of confidence and empowerment that ENCOURAGES and INSPIRES you to think differently about yourself – because I believe there’s a powerful, positive chain reaction when we embrace it and that magical moment of kindness has a ripple effect, spreading LOVE and JOY from one person to another, and to the world!” – Charlotte Tilbury
Since 1993, Women for Women International has helped women in war-torn countries learn the skills they need to rebuild their lives and inspire hope for the future.
There are still brutal armed conflicts across the globe, while these circumstances are beyond our control, what we can do to help is to raise awareness. Make this International Women’s Day a meaningful one with this T-shirt.
