How women are paving the road to equality
As we mark International Women’s Day, the Milanese jeweler Pomellato is tracing down milestones in women’s rights through the years, from the explosion of the women’s movement in the late 1960s, when the brand was founded, until today. These touchpoints in the ongoing flowering of women’s rights are the foundation on which women around the world are building the road to true equality, opportunity and fulfillment.
The women’s liberation movement has seen shining progress since the 1960s, when women couldn't get a credit card without a husband to cosign for them. From the heady origins of the women’s liberation movement half a century ago to today’s worldwide viral phenomena #MeToo and #TimesUp, we look back at women’s achievements over two centuries and the progress that has already been made, and draw inspiration for the hopes and dreams of the future.
