At Cycles Gladiator, we’re excited and proud to participate in this year’s Your Hour, Her Power campaign from Dress for Success.
Women’s empowerment has been at core of Cycles Gladiator’s identity since the beginning. We’re named after the Gladiator Company, one of the first bicycle manufacturers to advertise bikes specifically for women in the 19th century. Bicycles helped provide freedom and autonomy for women in that era and were a critical part of the suffragette movement. To honor this history, each year we partner with non-profit organizations dedicated to championing women’s empowerment.
This year, throughout March for Women’s History Month, we’re taking the pledge with Dress for Success for the Your Hour, Her Power campaign. Cycles Gladiator will donate the equivalent of one hour’s wages for every employee within our parent company to this campaign.
These donations will be used to fund Dress for Success’s programs and services, which focus on job search support, financial literacy education, and health and wellness for women. These services are needed now more than ever in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, where women are facing the first global female recession.
We hope you will join us in spreading awareness and support of this crucial cause in your networks and via social media. And, if you can, please join us in making a donation to the Your Hour, Her Power campaign.
About Your Hour, Her Power
Dress for Success' annual International Women’s Day / Women’s History Month campaign, Your Hour, Her Power, calls on individuals to give just one hour of pay to help women achieve financial independence and upward mobility.
They are expanding the campaign concept in 2021 by honoring women in positions of power throughout the month of March to highlight the importance and impact of female leadership when it is most needed.
