Support Women Entrepreneurs

March 05, 2016

The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day calls on us to take steps to end the economic gender gap. At the Good Buy, we’re especially interested in advancing equal pay for women workers and supporting women-owned businesses.

Learn more about the progress toward gender parity in this recent World Economic Forum report. Today — and every day — is the time to talk about what we can do to accelerate its growth, while celebrating the social, cultural, economic, and political achievements women contribute daily.
