A very happy International Women's Day (and Women's History Month) to me and all those who observe! Today, we take a moment to celebrate our many achievements and to bring attention to women's rights issues, which include (but are hardly limited to) gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women. In honor of this year's big day, today's new-arrivals story will be dedicated to both brands and products that support, uplift, and champion women with every purchase, from slogan tees to jewelry to slippers, sweatshirts, and more. If you're going to be shopping anyway, it's worth considering these buys before others—helping out women across the globe while you do so.
In addition to my little roundup, my colleague Jasmine took the liberty of highlighting the best and buzziest female-founded brands out there right now, so be sure to head straight there when you're done. For now, shop my finds below.
Mango has collaborated with California-based illustrator Torin Ashtun and Barcelona-based writer Leti Sala to create a small capsule collection geared toward celebrating female artists and recognizing their achievements. All profits from the capsule will be donated to the Spanish NGDO Mundo Cooperante and its initiative Being a Girl Is a Right.
Beginning March 1, 2022, Blackbough Swim entered into a year-long partnership with Tahanan Sta.

For International Women’s Day, Gucci has released a special capsule collection comprising a T-shirt and baseball cap under the banner of CHIME FOR CHANGE, the House’s longstanding global campaign advocating for gender equality. With that, it will directly support diverse feminist organizations, movements, and activists led by Indigenous women and girls, young feminists, Disabled women, girls, and gender minorities, transgender and gender non-conforming women, and other groups who have been historically marginalized.
