Anyone with an internet connection knows that between the women's marches and the #MeToo movement in Hollywood, women's rights have taken a front seat in in the conversation this year. And while we are hell-bent on making progressive change in society, even the most dedicated trailblazer needs a little time to kick back and relax with a nice glass of vino once in a while. And what better way to enjoy the fruits of your labor than with a bottle of wine — or two — that's dedicated to gender equality? Enter Nasty Woman Wines, a female-owned company that's dedicated to women's advancement and getting a nice buzz.
Even the company's mission statement is getting us amped up to make some serious change. According to its site, Nasty Woman Wine celebrates women who are "strong, powerful, do good, say what they mean, don't take guff, watch out for the little person, can admit when they are wrong, and not gloat too much when they're right."
We also love how inclusive the brand is — you don't have to support a certain political party to be considered a nasty woman: "They are leaders and fighters, and they believe in equality for everyone, regardless of race, class, gender, creed, and sexual orientation. They are not just women on the left. They're on the right, in the middle and all around us. If these are your ideals, you're a nasty woman."
Hmm, that sounds about as refreshing as a chilled glass of Chardonnay, right?
Plus, the brand is seriously dedicated to giving back: 20 percent of the profits are donated to organizations that promote gender equality in policy and government leadership. We'll toast to that!
