Celebrating International Women's Day
by Christine 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
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.
