It’s the time for women.
With everything that has been happening in the world, from pay inequality to the objectification of women and the #metoo campaign in Hollywood, women’s voices are being heard.
On Sunday 7th January this year we saw the 75th Golden Globe Awards event dominated by a solidarity of women from Hollywood stars to feminist and activist companions. A sea of beautiful black garments highlighted the issue and a powerful speech from many presenters and winners donned the headlines the following day. None other than Oprah Winfrey as she addressed all girls and declared, ‘a new day is on the horizon.’
Last year we posted how wristbands can be used to band together for causes that are relevant and important to those around us. Well, this year it is not just individual issues and charities that can be addressed by wristbands, but international events like International Women’s Day. This year’s date is Thursday 8th March.
If you would like to design a wristband for your own raise awareness event or cause, you can design various bands on our website. If you are looking to order a personal wristband to correlate with Women’s Day, you could design various bands from Tyvek, to silicone, to fabric; representing femininity and strength in colour, graphics and font. Feel proud to celebrate, support and encourage women.
Speaking of Women…
London Grammar, Jorja Smith and MIA are headlining this year’s Bestival.
Grace Jones and Chaka Khan will also be taking prominent slots on the main stage, alongside siblings, Klara and Johanna Söderberg, of First Aid Kit. While the festival admits only a quarter of its line-up acts are female this year, it is still more than Wireless; which came under fire last month for featuring only three female artists on the bill. Bestival is not the only festival recognising the situation for more female artists, as Parklife festival has Lorde, Jessie Ware and Chvrches lined-up with prominent slots.
Beyoncé is headlining Coachella.
Last year, Beyoncé was scheduled to headline Coachella, but unfortunately could not perform due to concerns regarding her pregnancy. However, this year Beyoncé is back as Saturday’s headlining act this April, and will be joined by other female artists, HAIM and First Aid Kit.
