Happy International Women's Day! We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than compiling a list of female-owned businesses to support. We want to showcase all women, in all their diversities, embrace their facets and intersections of race, ethnicity, gender or sexual identity, or disability. Let us all support one another and what it means to be a woman in business.

SHADIE BY EA was born out of my frustration with being unable to find nude intimates and hosiery that matched my skin tone, in Australia. We're a small, black woman owned brand that aims to provide ethically made luxury intimates and essentials, designed to match all skin tones and sizes.
2. Raise Our Voices Australia
An initiative that exists to support young female and non-binary folk to be leading the conversation in domestic policy, foreign policy, and politics. Our public decision-making institutions must reflect us as a population. We need to be creating a future that reflects people in all of our diversity and embraces the intersectional nature of people in our population.
