The struggle for women’s equality is a challenge that is still fought every single day. While some people are busy keeping up with Spring trends or choosing the coffee of the month, others, in Iran and Saudi Arabia, are still being beaten and tortured on a daily basis.

A recent article by Nickolas Kristoff, NY Times, described the stories of two women:

Nasrin Sotoudeh, 55 year old writer/human rights lawyer in Iran, just sentenced to another 33 years in prison (on top of a five-year sentence she is now serving in solitary confinement), plus 148 lashes, for her work defending the rights of women and children in Iran.

Loujain al-Hathloul, 29 year old leader of the Saudi women’s rights movement/political prisoner, best known for her defiance of the female driving ban. She appeared on trial in March 2019 after months of imprisonment, torture, floggings, sexual harassment, waterboarding and electric shocks. She is now nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

And let’s not forget about one of the most pressing issues facing the world, as we know it - Global Warming and its direct impact on climate change. Everyone from individual consumers to established world leaders, have been reluctant to acknowledge this looming catastrophe. Even major players in the fashion industry are well aware of the need for change in the world. In a recent interview in CNN Style, fashion icon, Anna Wintour, stated that:

"Everybody is concerned about the climate crisis and what should be done to help. And obviously we're very aware, as other industries are, that we have been at fault and what can we do in the relatively short amount of time we have to course correct."

Women Warriors: The Voices of Change is a call to call to action that gives hope and inspiration to women and children around the world!
