Candis Celebrates: IWD22

Candis Celebrates International Women’s Day 2022 (IWD22) which will be celebrated worldwide on Tuesday 8th March 2022. International Women’s Day is a global celebration of women’s social, cultural, economic and political achievements. This year, the theme for IWD22 is Break The Bias. This theme focuses on encouraging gender equality. Rather than living in a world with discrimination, bias and stereotypes, the aim is to live in a world where we value and celebrate people’s differences.

IWD22 – How do we encourage gender equality?

But where do we start to make this happen? You can…

  • Celebrate women’s achievements
  • Raise awareness against bias
  • Take action for equality

You can start by simply congratulating the women in your family or workplace when they achieve something. Regardless of how big or small the accomplishment may seem, this recognition will show them it’s something worth celebrating.

Dress for Success

If you wish to donate to a charity that supports women’s equality, Candis Creations suggests the Dress for Success charity. This charity is an International Women’s Day Charity of Choice. The Dress for Success mission is to,

…empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

One way they do this is by providing women with clothing that’s appropriate for an interview. Not all women can afford a suit but, whether or not we agree with it, how you dress does have an impact on interview success. But how will these women be able to afford a suit if they can’t get a job to pay for a new suit? It’s a vicious cycle that Dress for Success aims to stop.

Doing something as simple as putting on nice panties in the morning rather than worn out nana knickers may not seem like it’ll have a big impact but scientists have proven that how you dress affects how you feel. It’s called Enclothed Cognition. I love wearing my Candis pretty underwear every day because wearing pretty lingerie makes me feel confident. I want to feel this every day, not just on special occasions. By providing women with comfortable cotton and lace undies that they can wear every day, Candis Creations is helping boost women’s confidence. Pretty and comfortable lace underwear provides a foundation for women everywhere to dress for success!
