International Women’s Day is a celebration of women around the world. As an inspiration destination that has embraced all women since day one, Pinterest is the place where women turn to discover ways they can be successful and confident on their own terms.
In celebration of International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8th, the Pinterest UK team attended CARE International’s #March4Women, a global movement for gender equality, in order to show their support in person.
Read how six Pinners built their businesses using Pinterest to achieve a common mission: to empower other women in entrepreneurship, self care and self acceptance.
"We feel really strongly about supporting women. It is a strong piece of our mission; to connect and support women. We give a portion of our profits to organizations that support women and girls.” -Meg K. Wheeler, co-founder One For Women
“One of my goals in life it to help women with darker skin feel beautiful and accepted.” -Atima Lui, Founder, Nudest
“My goal is to help as many women as possible to reach financial independence. It starts at the bottom with budgeting.” -Raya Reaves, Founder, City Girl Savings
“Amaliah is about creating a space for Muslim women on their own terms. It’s never been more important for Muslim women to be heard. We believe that a media company that centers the voices of Muslim women is a powerful tool for cultural change.” -Nafisa Bakkar, Co-Founder, Amaliah
"When our hearts or minds are wounded, they need to be taken care of to heal. Because these wounds are often invisible and even stigmatized, we tend to ignore them until the problem is too big. That's why we created Sanity & Self, the app that is redefining women's self-care and aiding women in empowering one another to heal, grow and belong." -Meng Li, Founder, Sanity & Self
Billie is also combating the pink tax, the extra amount women are charged for certain products or services for no good reason. That's why their razors are priced in line with men's razor subscriptions.
