Meet the team
How it all started...
In 2018, Sofia co-founded the non-profit organization Viva La Vulva. A lot has happened since then. Feminism and diversity are on everyone's lips, but that doesn't mean that everything that calls itself such is really authentic. That's #pinkwashing, and that's so not our thing.
We say: there's another way!
And that's exactly why we focus on womxn-led companies that offer more than just a product. Here you'll find brands that stand for social justice, sustainability, and real social change, a.o. #SupportYourWomxnGang 🌟
And we're far from done!
Our mission is to empower customers, womxn creators and people.
