Have you ever wanted to learn more about some of the intelligent, creative and all-around wonderful women at Spreadshirt? Here’s your chance!
Celebrating women should go beyond International Women’s Day on March 8th, that’s why we’ve declared March Spreadshirt Women’s Month. When it comes to diversity and representation in the workplace, we’ve got the facts to back-up our ambitions. We’re proud to say that we have 52% women in leadership roles!
Our sense of self-expression and empowerment goes beyond practicing diversity, it’s the essence of who we are. We’ve interviewed a few women at Spreadshirt about womanhood and challenged them to show us who they are with a custom product. Get inspired by their designs and create your own T-shirt in honor of Women’s Month.
Hanne — CCDO
Which woman in your life are you grateful for?
I am very grateful for my older sister, she introduced me to feminist literature like Simone de Beauvoir. As a teenager I started to think about the role of women in this world and what I could do to make a difference.
Daniela — Senior Customer Service Representative
What’s the most important challenge that women face today?
Depending on the form of society, women face different challenges. Women in Poland are fighting for their right to have an abortion. In Germany, they are fighting for the abolition of paragraph 219a.
Marta — Marketplaces Design Lead
Which woman you would like to meet and why?
The Nobel Prize Winner Olga Tokarczuk. She’s one of my favorite authors and I admire her for speaking about difficult topics in a beautiful way.
Sanja – Junior Software Engineer
How should we start making a difference for women globally?
We should finally recognize that gender isn’t binary, that not all women are born into the bodies they identify with, and that being true to who you are is the greatest strength and gift anyone can have.
Manuela — Director Global Strategic Alliances & Business Development
Which woman inspires you most?
Ida Strauß, my grandma at heart, 88 years young. During World War II she hid 2 Jewish families in her barn, shared the little food she and her family had to survive. For me she is the characterization of kindness and wisdom. This lady had to leave school after 4 years because she was “just a girl.” She knows what really matters.
We hope you feel inspired, energized and ready to work towards empowering women globally. Remember, change does not happen all at once. Any action big or small towards a more equitable future is one worth making!
