Who Run the World?
Just a week ago was International Women’s Day, which, across the nation, became a protest called “A Day Without Women.” This was women’s way of showing the world what it would be like without our contribution to society, with many females sitting out of work and other obligations in solidarity.
This protest, of course, comes on the heels of many attacks on the women’s rights in the U.S., most notably our reproductive rights. Another way that women are supporting women is identifying and doing business with businesses run by other women, especially a portion of the profit is donated to women’s causes.
So, what can us powerful, beautiful Blush girls do to support our fellow females? Shop women’s businesses and stay gorgeous and trendy at the same time:
-Check out DryBar to get your hair looking perfect for a night out on the town. Owned by Ali Webb, your hair is in good hands with the master stylists at DryBar.
-Treat yourself with Birchbox, owned by Hayley Barna. This subscription beauty service is pretty popular, but if you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time!
-If you’re interested in making a little more of a political statement, snag one of Amanda Brinkman’s adorb “Nasty Woman” shirts, with a big heart on the front. The best part? Brinkman, owner of Google Ghost, donates 50% of all t-shirt proceeds to Planned Parenthood. Love it!
