Fashion and beauty brands love to support a cause and for International Women’s Day 2021 this Monday, there’s a whole host of products you can buy that give back to women’s charities and organisations.
What is the International Women's Day 2021 theme?
The International Women's Day theme 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge, encouraging us all to choose to challenge - challenging us to call out gender bias, inequality and to choose to celebrate women's achievements. The aim? To challenge things, to help create an equal world.
If ever there was a time to justify spending some cash, it’s now – from lipsticks to T-shirts, we’ve rounded up the best brands supporting women’s causes for IWD 2021.
IWD is celebrated on March 8.
