These International Women’s Day Beauty Products Will Let You Shop For Progress

Giving back can literally be as simple as clicking a button. By donating money to a cause you believe in, you’re enabling them to continue doing important work that likely requires funding. So on Mar. 8th, consider shopping these International Women’s Day beauty products, whose proceeds will all benefit various nonprofits that empower and lift up girls and women everywhere. The power of a dollar can go so far, but the power of women supporting women even farther.

International Women’s Day was created in 1975 by the United Nations, who describe it as “a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.”

It’s a day to revel in the power of all female-identifying individuals — to honor our strength, impact, and force — but to also take a step back and analyze the work that needs to be done so that we are all equal and empowered. Because as we all know, there is a lot of work left to do.

While buying beauty products might seem like a trivial way to contribute to this important goal, don’t forget that your money will be going towards organizations that have global and truly impactful reaches. From UN Women to Step Up to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, each one of them helps women in monumental ways. If there ever was a reason to shop, it’s this one.
