With every International Women’s Day comes a slew of products emblazoned with “Girl Power” and “The Future Is Female.” And, while so many of these products are adorable—and a fun way to show your support for women on IWD—it’s hard to know which companies are actually putting your money in the hands of women. If the company from which you’re purchasing your International Women’s Day 2019 merchandise is putting money in the pockets of someone who doesn’t represent or support feminism, it kind of counteracts the gesture you were trying to make in the first place.

Don’t fret, though! I am here to the rescue for all things International Women’s Day shopping. I’ve created a comprehensive IWD shopping guide that will allow you to buy cute things (my only prerogative in life) while actually supporting women. Some of the products come from women-owned businesses, while some give money back to organizations that aim to support women (Think Time’s Up and Girls Inc.), and some even do both. So go forth and shop with confidence this International Women’s Day. Any excuse to buy yourself something cute (and ethically responsible), right?
