Happy International Women’s Day, betches. Every betch loves a holiday, especially ones that are specifically dedicated to celebrating ourselves. Think of it like having a second birthday and take the opportunity to treat yourself to a second iced coffee and lots of Instagram likes, all for a good cause of course.
As you know, we’ve been working with our favorite beauty brand Soap & Glory to promote a conversation around female empowerment since last December, through our Slay Your Pay campaign. So unless you’ve been living under a rock or like, on a serious internet cleanse since then, you’re already well aware of how much we disapprove of the gender pay gap.
So now we’ve decided to tackle a new issue – the overall disparity in female leadership and role models in general. Not only do we make less money than men for doing the same exact thing, but to make matters worse, there are still less women getting a chance in these male dominated fields. For example:
- Only 14% of American CEOs are women
- Less than 20% of chefs are women (so it’s unclear where they get that whole ‘women in the kitchen’ thing from)
- Only 5% of commercial pilots are women
- Zero percent of American presidents have been women
To put it mildly, sh*t is f*cked up. Okay so maybe not mildly, but definitely accurately.
This International Women’s Day is the perfect time to speak out the best way we know how – on Instagram, obvs.
Follow us today on @betches and @soapandgloryusa as we post inspirational quotes and images from our favorite female role models, tagging @betches and @soapandgloryusa. Of course, we want you to post your own as well, and if you’re lucky, you might even get a regram from us.
So show us, who is your #womenspiration? What has she said or done that empowers and inspires you? Today is the day to let the world (and your Instagram following) know that betches are not to be f*cked with.
