International Women’s Day is this week, which means the countdown is on to find a way to publicly show your support for the sisterhood. Here are some of the ways to fly the flag this Friday or make a girl-boss statement all year-round.
Wear your heart on your sleeve
Make a regal statement with this Alexa Chung-designed tee, flocked with the spiritually-enhanced words 'Divine Feminine' in red velvet.

Plus, with 10 per cent of all sales from the collection in 2019 donated to the SHIFT Project, there's no reason not to invest.

Join the Secret Sisterhood with a necklace
The Secret Sisterhood jewellery range is all about showing support for women's equality while pledging to make a difference. 100 per cent of Secret Sisterhood's profits are given to their charity partners to help provide girls' education, end human trafficking and domestic violence, and empower women micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries. Become a part of this growing movement and show your support for women's empowerment around the world.

Say it loud
Made especially for Net-A-Porter's exclusive International Women's Day capsule collection, Isabel Marant's cotton-jersey T-shirt has the message that always needs repeating.

Red Bubble, the queens of the print-on-demand tees have a decent range of girl power themed tees to get your message out there. From the cover-all Happy Women's Day to the empowering 'Girls can do anything'' and 'Future is Female' to this Handmaid's Tale illustration creepily captioned 'Under His Eye'.

If you like to mix up your low-end slogan with high-end luxe, then Dior is your go-to brand. They have just released their newest feminist statement tee so probably won’t be quite ready-to-wear on Friday. But better start saving as they usually retail for a cool $1000.
Christian Dior T-shirt, approx $1000.
Decorate your home
Australian ceramics and homewares brand Marloe Marloe has teamed up with Share the Dignity, a charity which offers funding and support for Australian women impacted by domestic abuse and provides sanitary products to homeless women, for International Women's Day. 30% of all proceeds from Marloe Marloe's new collection 'Grace' will be donated to Share the Dignity between March 8 and April 30.
