On 8th March we celebrate International Women’s Day by showcasing Fair Trade women who are leading and taking active roles. On the occasion of this important day WFTO global on gender equity in the work place and on business models that empower women.

Fair Trade espouses gender equality through female leadership and economic empowerment. As the reports will stress, most Fair Trade Enterprises worldwide are run by women. We are pioneering new mission-led models of business where women take charge and share a clear message: More women leaders for gender equality and sustainable development!

The International Women’s Day campaign along with the two reports by WFTO global are part of the Trade Fair Live Fair project funded by the European Commission.
