We Will Rise...Might As Well Shine

March 5, 2018

Dragon Women

(noun): a force of nature. Bold. Fierce. Full of fire.

For International Women’s Day this year, we called upon a tribe of legendary #DragonWomen to join us and forge community. United by their ability to back words with inspirational action, they turned out in full force to raise funds for five women’s issues-focused charities.

In our world, the Naga dragon, of Balinese legend, is symbolic of protection and love. Dragon Women are bold, powerful, full of fire: human catalysts with a unique ability, through actions and words, to ignite radical, positive societal transformation.

“However small or large your platform is, it’s about taking the responsibility and making sure that you're using it to make a change, and using it as a force for change.” - Adwoa Aboah, model/activist and founder of Gurls Talk.

Ebonee Davis, model and champion of representation in fashion and media, wholeheartedly agrees. Of her decision to push back against discrimination & exclusionary beauty standards, she says, “the greatest form of activism is to be a living example of the type of people you’d like to walk the earth with. The revolution starts with self: We are responsible for creating the world we want to see.“

Join us in celebration of the modern women embracing their potential & responsibility to bring their values to life and truly be the change we all wish to see in the world. We invite you to stand with us and all #DragonWomen: 10% of proceeds from all purchases made on International Women’s Day, March 8th, will be donated to the below charitable organizations:
