We Celebrate You, and All Women of Fair Trade
Are you a woman who purchases Fair Trade? Then you are a FairHer woman. And we want to celebrate you, starting today!
At Fair Trade, we recognize the importance of empowering women. From fairer wages, to educational opportunities to funding for health services, Fair Trade supports and enables women farmers and workers to lift themselves out of poverty, provide for their families, gain leadership opportunities, and so much more.
But did you know that women play an equally important role in empowering us – the consumers – to make a change in the world? Women farmers, workers, business representatives and advocates all help get Fair Trade on store shelves, enabling us to vote with our dollars for a better world. These women make the world fairer, and you are a FairHer women when you make a Fair Trade purchase. That’s why we’re celebrating ALL of the women of Fair Trade in our new FairHer campaign, starting today through May 8.
Celebrate being a FairHer woman (and guys, we appreciate your support of FairHer women!) and join all the women who grow, make, distribute, and purchase Fair Trade products. Here’s how to get involved:
