Everything we do at Stripe + Stare is about women and empowering each other. Our symbolise all that we stand for - kind to the planet and so comfortable they leave you free to conquer the world (without hungry bum issues…crucial!). A company founded and run by women who always have each other’s backs.
Part of the reason our brand even exists is the belief that we should all help each other where ever we can. We truly believe we are all in this together and need to work as a team so women supporting women is a cause close to our hearts. As such we put our money where our mouth is and give 5% of our profits to women’s empowerment charities.
Charities we have worked with to date include The Lady Garden Foundation (raising awareness and money for the fight against Gynaecological Cancer and Maggie’s (creating an oasis of calm with expert advice for those suffering cancer).
This year we have picked The Fawcett Society – here’s what they say about themselves:
The Fawcett Society is the UK’s leading membership charity campaigning for gender equality and women’s rights at work, at home and in public life. Our vision is a society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfill their potential creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.
We’ve been advancing women’s equality since 1866 when at just 19, Millicent Fawcett collected signatures on a petition for women’s votes. She went on to lead the constitutional suffrage campaign and made this cause her lifetime’s work, securing equal voting rights 62 years later.
Today we continue her legacy of fighting sexism and gender inequality through hard-hitting research. Our national campaigns shape the debate and drive change - and they are only made possible through the support of our members. Be part of our movement for equality. Join us now.
WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING FOR?
The Fawcett Society campaigns to:
Close the gender pay gap. At current rates of progress, it will take 62 years to close it.
Secure equal power. Just 30% of MPs and 33% of councillors are women.
Challenge attitudes and change minds. 20% of men aged 25-34 say women’s equality has ‘gone too far’.
Defend women’s rights post-Brexit. There must be no turning the clock back.
A society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfil their potential creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.
