One Sisterhood earring
We create every piece of jewelry with a story. Stories of women with different identities, roots, beliefs and cultures who come together and tell stories of resilience and create affirmations.
With ‘One Sisterhood’, our new jewelry piece we call for a positive vital experience of sisterhood.
One. Uno. Moja. واحد. один. एक. ایک
This is how you say One in different languages. We are all One Sisterhood. We are stronger together.
Article One of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948, called for all human beings, being equal, to act in the spirit of brotherhood. Yet we believe this language omits the unique, diverse and powerful spirit of women. It is past time to acknowledge and include sisterhood in the language of human rights.
One Sisterhood is a message of feeling one with the community. A community that is inclusive of all of those who experience and interpret the world as a woman. One Sisterhood strives to ensure that this community is welcoming, accepting and understanding of the full spectrum of womanhood.
With every purchase of One Sisterhood, 10% of the proceeds will go to KaKenya’s Dream, a non-profit organization in Kenya, who will use the contribution to meet the basic needs of vulnerable girls in rural Kenya and keep them learning and safe during and after the COVID-19 pandemic
We are grateful to Kiran Gandhi Click here to purchase your pair of One Sisterhood
