Be Bold For Change

HolidayIndigo ApparelComment

This is Part 1 of Indigo Apparel's Women's Empowerment Series. Shaye is a sustainable lifestyle blogger and founder of www.galtruism.com—for nature, for others, for you.


International Women's Day, originally called International Working Women's Day, is celebrated on March 8th every year. It is a central point in the movement for women’s rights. I hope for the day women will be celebrated everyday, so we don’t need one day to be celebrated. 

There's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender equality around the globe, now more than ever. In support of International women’s day many will be found attending rallies, protesting on behalf of women’s rights, or spending money on women owned businesses like Indigo Apparel. How we wanted to celebrate this day and month is by asking women from all around what women empowerment means to them and to share a story about how being a woman has impacted their life. We hope to bring a sense of togetherness and unity, a safe space for women to share their creativity, ideas, and voice.

 

There's Progress in Partnership

As we welcome the month of March and Spring arises, we want to bring focus on equality.  Equality is the state of being equal in status, rights and opportunities. Clothing is a statement, an identity, and a lifestyle. Clothing can also spread a message and stand for a cause. Through our clothing at Indigo Apparel we want to be one of many voices to show equality.

International Women’s day is coming up and gender inequality still exists. There are many steps to lessen inequality; many of these steps involve working together, listening to girls and women, and allowing women to rise to positions of power.  One of the harsh realities to remember is that when women “trespass” in spaces that were previously male-dominated, there can be backlash. Backlash can look like violence, humiliation in the office, sexual harassment… etc. This harsh reality doesn’t mean we should stop striving forward. Let our voices be heard, encourage each other, especially mothers, to raise aspirations of young girls. Images of what a women should be or do must continue to evolve. We need more role models to expand the dreams of young women in fields like engineering and entrepreneurship to be more confident in themselves and what they do.

Indigo Apparel is designed with passion and driven with a cause of sustainability. We strive for comfortability not only with fabric, but being comfortable in your own skin. Clothing is a way of expression, and what better way to express a passion and a cause than to practice what you preach #beboldforchange.
