We are delighted that women in Finland enjoy a high degree of equality. Their position in society and business is well-respected and better in comparison to women in many cultures. However, in many sectors women are not paid equally and less than 10% of startup funding has been granted for innovations and important businesses established by women. We want to change this inequality.
Women are leaders, change makers, care takers, peace keepers - so much more. Store of Women is a heart that stores wisdom. It stores knowledge about materials that are good for the nature and information where products have improved the lives of people. Our Store of Women development project stands for equal opportunities & equal rights. Supporting women across the globe benefits especially underprivileged communities. That is why we are here to give a voice to hard working, wise women and their achievements.
Through each product we invite you to become an everyday world changer. Making a greater impact by choosing the ethical over easy. We believe that every person on this planet has the right to be respected and work within safe conditions and fair payment.
