It’s International Women’s Day! In celebration, kate spade has released their latest collaboration with Women for Women International. And naturally, it’s an exuberant explosion of color. What makes this collection unique is that each piece is handcrafted by women in Rwanda. Through their hand in hand partnership with Women for Women International, kate spade works with women in war-torn countries providing training, fair wages, and sustainable income in places where these opportunities are rare. Empowering women. Handcrafted products. Bold Accessories. Count us in!

This year also marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and in celebration Women for Women International has organized a global meet me on the bridge event today. In their words, “Women, children and men, whether it’s 2, 200, 2000, or more, will be joining together on bridges across the world, holding up banners, making a public statement that ‘Stronger Women Build Bridges of Peace’ and supporting women in war-torn areas.” Find one near you. Happy International Women’s Day!
