March 8 is internationally known as Women’s Day throughout the world, which commemorates the movement for women’s rights. This day, suggested in 1910 during the International Socialist Woman's Conference and officially adopted in 1975 by the United Nations, continually grows stronger every year. Each year, the United Nations delegates a theme which capitalizes on issues in women's rights based on the current circumstances of society. The theme for International Women's Day 2018 was chosen as 'Time is Now: Rural and Urban Activists Transforming Women’s Lives'.

One of the most powerful movements seen has been the hashtag of #MeToo. This movement spread virally in October 2017 on social media to help demonstrate the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. Specifically in South Korea’s society today, chants of #MeToo have been heard far and wide, demanding not only for prosecution of sexual harassment, but also better workplace rights and equal pay.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we want to recognize women who have made a contribution to our brand and continually support us today. Through their hard work in each of their respective fields, they have led the way to inspire other women to excel in their own passions and pave the way to equal rights for all. Thank you for all your hard work!
