Be the Change: Promise Rings from Tumbleweed Bead Co. @shoptumbleweed #hwhtw

Jewelry makers Tumbleweed Bead Co. have launched The Promise Project to donate a portion of proceeds from their promise rings to charities that empower women.  $1 from each ring sold (they start at $10!) goes to Women Thrive Worldwide and YWCA Wenatchee Valley.  But why promise rings?

“Inspiration for our Promise Rings came from a fabulous friend. She bought herself a ring, made herself a promise, and wore the ring as a constant reminder to keep that promise to herself! ”

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than by supporting women artisans from all over the world at the National Museum of Women in the Arts?

“The Global Marketplace features jewelry, ceramics, personal accessories, and home decor created by women artisan groups living in emerging economies throughout the world. Exhibitors representing the craftswomen will also discuss the arts as a powerful vehicle of economic development.

“Celebrating its 25th anniversary, NMWA hosts its third annual Global Marketplace in conjunction with Passport DC.

“The Global Marketplace is part of NMWA’s Empowering Women through Art initiative, and proceeds from the two-day event go directly to the women artisans. Countries represented include: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Laos, Mexico, Peru, Swaziland, Turkey, Vietnam among others.”

“(Wo)manning the tills in Saudi Arabia: Women start work as shopkeepers” #hwhtw

Saudi Arabia’s new policy on women working in retail shops is great news – not only for women shoppers, but for women who need jobs.

“A decade of embarrassing discussions with salesmen about undergarment sizes and styles is coming to an end as Saudi Arabia implements the first phase of the Labor Ministry’s directives on hiring more women as shopkeepers. ”
