Fair-Trade Label Promotes Gender Equality in India [Good.is]
The Dutch fashion label Satara isn't just in the business of flowy, free-trade clothing. The pieces in its current collection are pretty, light weight, and perfect for summer days, but it's the story behind the clothing that's the real draw. By employing, training, and fairly paying underprivileged but entrepreneurial women in India, the nonprofit seeks to promote gender equality and self-sufficiency.
