Women’s History Month
Did you know March is Women’s History Month?
It’s a chance to highlight female pioneers, the issues still affecting women, and hopes for the future.
In the U.S. there are more than 11.6 million women-owned businesses. This is amazing! Yet there are still challenges. In Illinois, for example, the average gender wage gap for women across industries is 22%.
And the wage gap is worse for most women of color and working mothers.
At Bright Endeavors, we want to bring to light the issue of the gender wage gap this month.
That’s why we’re asking all of our retail customers to round up their purchases by $2.22 to represent the 22% gap.
All proceeds will go towards our job training program to empower young moms and work to close the gap.
We are tremendously grateful for your support of woman-owned companies and women-made products this month and every month!
