The Female Glaze is a vegan feminist bakery selling cookies, choc bites, pastries and cake to London and the UK.
It's not only a business that is kind to animals, but it also promotes women's empowerment. To help put this in place, we try to source our ingredients from companies that run women empowerment programs, especially when it comes to sourcing coffee and chocolate as women farmers are constantly undervalued and underpaid for their work due to gender-related challenges. The companies we partner with are also, when possible, run by women and with a focus on ethical productions (e.g. recycling and upcycling). Several studies show that eco-friendly behaviours are still stereotypically viewed as feminine, making cis men less likely to adopt them. We also partner up with feminist, LGBT+, anti-racist charities and donate part of the profits.
By providing delicious goodies with a social purpose, we hope to help more people understand how food choices are political and important.
