Today is International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate women everywhere and also take action towards gender equality. This year’s theme is #PressforProgress, and we completely agree. We are proud to support our CHARITY BY DESIGN partners whose missions are to help girls and women across the globe. Below are plenty of ways you can get involved and join the conversation this International Women’s Day,

1. Wear Support On Your Sleeve – With our CHARITY BY DESIGN bangles, you can show support for your favorite women’s organization in style.
