50% of proceeds from your candle purchase go to the Women's March nonprofit organization. The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.
It's been 100 years since the 19th amendment guaranteed that “the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
As we celebrate this important milestone, we must sit with the amendment’s complicated legacy and reality, both of which are instructive for the future. The expansion of voting rights to women has been essential to the fight for equality, whether in the workplace, in the classroom, in cultural norms, or in the voting booth. Yet, the fight for female equality continues.
In 1848, a group of abolitionist activists—mostly women, but some men—gathered in Seneca Falls, New York to discuss the problem of women’s rights. They were invited there by the reformers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. Light a candle and celebrate those that fought for women. Light your own spark and and join the fight!
