Choose female led brands. Create gender equality.
Femeconomy educates consumers, business owners and budget owners on how their purchasing decisions can create gender equality.
Femeconomy identifies and amplifies companies that have at least 30% women on the Board of Directors or are 50% female owned.
Companies with female leaders are more likely to have workplace flexibility and less likely to have a gender pay gap, so they are helping to create gender equality for their employees and communities.
