The One Where We Celebrate Gender Equality
Gender Equality Day focuses on celebrating the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848. The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality.
Our mission has always been to create gender free clothing for kids- not just gender neutral clothing. We want kids to be confident wearing whatever color they want. We stand behind our slogan that color has no gender and we encourage parents to express the equality in colors as a small step in the right direction forward for equal opportunity for our future generation. We hope all kids can grow up to be who they're meant to be, opposed to who their parents want them to be.
We live in a society with various different gender roles, stereotypes, and added limitations programmed and labeled onto all of us at such a young age. Unfortunately, these preconceived ideas and concepts have transpired into adulthood. For things to change, we have to make a change. True change begins + ends at home.
As we celebrate Gender Equality Day on August 26th this year and realize just how far we've come, it presents the perfect opportunity to talk about ways we make make little progress daily in our own individual worlds. Everyday we can make decisions to positively impact our reality. While there are many ways parents can show gender equality at home, here are ways you can take initiative + incorporate gender equality specifically with your kids in your everyday routine.
