My name is Holly, and I am the owner of Sew My Gawd. I am a feminist to my bones. My feminism is one of the most important parts of my identity. Before I am a lesbian, a crafter, a partner; before I am anything else, I am a woman and a feminist. My shop has always reflected this through the products I sell, but going forward, I would like it to be a more ‘actively’ feminist business.
As a result, 10% from every sale is going to be donated to Women’s Aid.
I am supporting Women's Aid because their work supporting women who experience abuse has been truly pioneering. I find it horrifying that 3 women are killed every 2 weeks by their partner or former partner. Women's Aid are a federation of over 170 organisations which provide just under 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country. Their work helps prevent further deaths, and helps women rebuild their lives.
