Charities to support for International Women's Day

Why do we need Women's Charities?

Despite progress, we are nowhere near gender equality globally. According to Statista, only 14 countries offer women full equal rights

From the start, girls face unequal opportunities. They have less access to education, struggle to obtain contraceptives, and often carry a heavier burden of domestic labour. These inequalities compound over time resulting in limited career choices, and a widening pay gap

Basic needs like healthcare and reproductive rights remain out of reach for many worldwide.

What is International Women's Day?

Businesses Supporting Women's Charities

Sephora supporting Project Glimmer

Sephora Charity

Project Glimmer is a US-based organisation working to empower every girl to reach their full potential. To date, they have supported more than half a million girls in foster care and youth service programs.

They do this through a combination of free resources, career coaching, as well as gifts and beauty essentials for young girls in need.

In 2022, Sephora decided to support Project Glimmer by allowing members to convert their unused Sephora rewards points into a donation to the organisation (500 points = $10 donation). It was a great opportunity to support a worthy cause and let customers donate.
