Celebrating International Women's Day

Mar 08, 2021Christine Kim

For International Women's Day, we're honoring all the inspiring and extraordinary women in our lives. We especially want to highlight three incredible women working day and night at the forefront for women's rights: Amanda Nguyen, MILCK and Krista Suh.


A force to be reckoned with: Amanda Nguyen



CEO and founder of Rise, a civil rights organization, Amanda Nguyen is a civil rights trailblazer. She worked to write and implement the Sexual Assault Survivor's Bill of Rights, which is the the 21st bill to pass unanimously through Congress. Since 2016, she has helped pass over 20 laws. Fueled by her personal frustration with the broken criminal justice system, she works around the clock to provide better policies and services for women. With the recent uptick of anti-Asian hate crimes, Amanda has been working tirelessly as a representative and voice for the Asian American community. She is also a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and has aspirations of becoming an astronaut.


Singer-songwriter that influenced an entire movement: MILCK



MILCK performed her song "Quiet" at the 2017 Women's March, which became embraced as the anthem for the women's march. She was invited to perform her song while sharing the stage with Yoko Ono. Continuing to use her music towards social justice, she founded Somebody's Beloved Fund. The funds raised from songs, brand parternships and public donations are directly given to seven organizations that are working towards healing and building power around areas of justice, reform, feminism, civil rights, criminal justice and mental health. She recently worked with Amanda Gorman for The National Day of Racial Healing. She continually uses her music talents and platform to stir and inspire change.


Hollywood screenwriter who took the Women's March by storm: Krista Suh



Craftivist, feminist and Hollywood screenwriter Krista Suh is also the creator of The Pussyhat, which made waves and a bold statement of unity at the 2017 Women's March. In response to the 2016 presidential election and former president's comments on women as well as fighting to de-stigmatize the word "pussy" and transform it into a word of empowerment, the Pussyhat was created. If you didn't notice, there was a sea of pink knit caps at the Women's March– talk about influence. She continually uses her work to inspire: next stop, producing a movie.
