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.
On Thursday 8th March it is International Women’s Day. Much like the collective colour used at the Globes, wristbands can highlight, promote and raise awareness for your cause. Whether they are used as a commercial marketing tool to highlight companies who support and encourage gender equality or are in conjunction to an event which commences on International Women’s Day, wristbands can be customised to show how your business or event are in support of a day which has become increasingly important over the last few years.
Design your Tyvek entry band to represent femininity and strength in colour, graphics and font, letting your spectators know who you are and what your event is for. Let your participants feel proud to celebrate, support and encourage women. The day is about celebrating women and if you’re not running an event, but are a business looking to promote your support, then silicone and fabric gift bands are perfect. Combine an order of sizes youth and adult with your design and you can inspire younger generations to celebrate a day dedicated to women.
Start designing your International Women’s Day wristband online now. With several options to choose from, you can show support and encouragement for women this spring.
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.
