International Women’s Day (March 8th) shines a light on women’s achievements and honours the historic and ongoing ‘call to action’ for gender equality.
Since 1977, the UN has helped Women’s Day to become a globally recognized day, with 2022’s theme focussed on ‘Gender equality for a sustainable tomorrow’. Not only is this half of the population more vulnerable to the climate crisis, the UN recognizes the power of girls and women as leaders and change-makers.
At Coriander, we think this is the perfect time to amplify the spirit of our Life and Style stores that uplifts and connects the women in our community.
Every product we carry supports women — in both big and little ways. From accessories that delight, clothing that embraces our desire for both style and comfort, to décor and gifts that spark both joy and smiles, we strive to celebrate what it means to be a woman in this world.
Our sister stores are run by women, for women. Even Sylvia, our store mascot, is a fierce (and feathered) female! You can find out more about her story here.
Knowing that we’re stronger (and can have more fun) together, we continue to grow our Coriander community by connecting women through both our online and live events. We invite you to check out our interactive ‘Social Hour’ where you can shop, share a laugh (and raise a glass!) from the comfort of your own home.
In honour of International Women’s Day, we’ve put together a collection of our products that support women in so many ways:
Not only do these all-natural organic lip balms take care of your lips, BitchStix is on a mission to put their money where their mouth is, by reclaiming a word that has been used to shame women and donating to nonprofit organizations that support survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
As your daughter grows, use this journal to record your thoughts, feelings, hopes, and memories about her, creating a keepsake to share. Even though she might not always show it (we see you parents of teenagers!), your words of wisdom can be a source of strength and inspiration as she navigates this world.
We love Giftologie’s handmade jewellery that not only adds vibrant colour and personality to your outfits, but also donates a portion of all profits to women’s charities. As an added bonus, all Giftologie cuffs are printed with an inspirational quote inside:
"The best memories come from bad ideas with best friends."
We second that!
Back by popular demand, our second Shannon Passero Trunk Show is coming up on Wednesday, March 9. The effortless style, feel-good fabrics and fits that flatter all silhouettes make this female designer’s collection a perennial favourite, both in-store and online.
Join us on International Women’s Day, and any other day of the year, in celebrating the inspiration and energy that comes from women supporting women. Together, we’re stronger. Cheers to that!
