International Women’s Day
As an all-female team here at Mantra,
we have a big commitment to empowering and supporting women and girls to be
strong, confident individuals, and we are keen supporters of International Women's Day.
International Women's Day is a global
day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of
women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
It has been celebrated for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in
1911 supported by over a million people.
it has a different theme, and this year’s theme is:
The thinking is that from challenge comes change – so let's all choose to challenge. Let’s look out for things that need to be challenged, and then go ahead and challenge them - to help forge a gender equal world.
Now, more than ever, with the challenges of the Coronavirus
disproportionately affecting women economically more than men, it is even more
important to press ahead with change.
Many of our charity necklaces raise funds for charities that
help and support women – from ‘Sisterhood’ for Women for Women International,
to ‘Empower’ to support Care International, to our ‘Third Eye Chakra’
supporting PANDAS, who help women through pre- and post-natal mental health
issues, to our ‘Together’ necklace supporting global charity, Think Equal. You
can do your bit to help by choosing one of these pieces, as 25% of the selling
price goes straight to charity.
Or simply choose a necklace as a symbol for yourself, to
remind you to feel strong, empowered and confident in your own skin. We have a
number of necklaces that are perfect to honour the spirit of International
Women’s Day - from ‘I celebrate the woman I am’, to ‘Strong women – may we know
them, may we raise them, may we be them’, to ‘I am enough’.
