Getting Real about Empowering Women and Girls

May 23, 2016


There’s a lot of lip service given to women’s empowerment lately, but some organizations are the real deal. AAUW’s programs work to break through anything that stands in the way of women’s and girls’ opportunities, educationally, politically, and socially. We’re proud to be the beneficiary of 20 percent of gross profits* from all RealHer products until April 2018. RealHer is on a mission to empower young women to embrace their individuality and desire to succeed — and to let makeup act as a source of confidence.

Whether you want to rock hot pink lipstick or not, we can all agree that we want young women to be strong and confident. And we’re putting their money to good use. Our programs reach girls and women at every stage of their lives to empower them to be who they are and to do what they’re passionate about. Find out more about what we do and how you can help.
