The first International Women's Day was held over a century ago to draw attention to important women's issues. Today, it has grown to become a global day to pay homage to female strength and achievement, while also becoming a day to show love and support for equality.
Pride in Purple
Purple has always been historically associated with efforts to achieve gender equality, with its strong symbolism of justice and dignity. International Women's Day adopted the colour from the Women's Social and Political Union, the organisation that led Britain's women's suffrage movement in the early 20th century.
We say the future is female as a reminder to love yourself and remember that every woman has a voice. Equality starts with love and being loved, and if you believe in a future that is female, then that future can start right now.
Celebrate in style
Mark International Women's Day 2019 with our International Women's Day hanging charm. Depicting tulips on a shaded pink enamel background, the charm is engraved with the words 'Happiness', 'Strength', 'Love' and 'My Inspiration'. These words represent the beauty of womanhood. This charm was created to symbolise how women can be both powerful and beautiful, and make the world a just place.
