International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day to celebrate the achievements of women everywhere and the progress that’s been made socially, economically, culturally and politically. However, the day is still needed to increase awareness on gender equality and to push for a more balanced society.

International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century and is notorious all around the world to remember the courage made by ordinary women who played a crucial role in influencing the history of our world. The very first International Women's Day took place in 1911 and was supported by over one million people.

This year’s theme for IWD is #balanceforbetter. It’s about increasing awareness and building a more gender-balanced world. Things have moved on drastically over the years, however, it can’t be denied that there is still a way to go to bridge the gender-gap. Let's all help create a #BalanceforBetter.

The Stackers team, we’re very proud to say, is very balanced, with 57% of the office workforce being female, many of those in management positions also. Head over to our Insta page on International Women’s Day (8th March) to find out more about the Stackers ladies and what they do here!

This year we have chosen to support a very special charity, Refuge. Refuge gives well needed support to victims of domestic violence and strongly believe that no-one should have to live in fear of any form of violence or abuse. Astonishingly, on an average day Refuge are supporting over 6,000 people and rely on the publics generosity to be able to continue to provide this much needed care, as well as vital training for staff.

We are supporting Refuge by raising money through our International Women's Day Limited Edition collection. 15% of all sales from this collection will go straight to Refuge and will help towards saving and changing the lives of women and children in need.
