What To Wear On International Women’s Day

On March 8, women all over the world will come together to promote social, economic, cultural and political equality. The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is Be Bold for Change. Fashion has recently been taking a stand against gender inequality, with designers like Prabal Gurung, Dior, Jonathan Simkhai and more creating merchandise that champions women’s rights and benefits women’s organizations. (Some women are even going on strike this year to show what the working world would be like without them.) Here, we’ve pulled together fashion-girl-approved items that send a message of female empowerment and benefit our fellow ladies across the globe.
