6 Ways You Can Support the Women in Your Life and Community

What makes Sprout truly special is the women who work tirelessly behind the scenes to provide children with the best possible start in life. From customer service to the marketing department, from the warehouse to the boardroom, women are at the heart of everything that Sprout does.

As we celebrate International Women's Day, it's important to remember that gender equality is not just a one-day event, but an ongoing effort. At Sprout Organic, we believe that everyone has a role to play in promoting gender equality and supporting women in our communities, so we’ve compiled a list of 6 ways you can help support the women in your life and community not just today, but every day!


6 Ways You Can Support the Women in Your Life and Community

1. Challenge gender stereotypes

Be aware of the ways in which gender stereotypes and biases affect women and challenge them when you encounter them. This can include interrupting sexist jokes or comments, and challenging media representations of women.

2. Listen

Create space for women to share their experiences and stories, and listen with an open mind and heart. Avoid interrupting or dismissing women, and validate their experiences and feelings.

3. Advocate for women's rights

Advocating for women's rights means using your voice to speak out about issues that affect women, such as reproductive rights, gender-based violence and pay equity. Attend protests, write letters to lawmakers, and use social media to raise awareness about these issues.

4. Offer mentorship

Offer guidance and support to a woman in your life who is just starting out in her career or pursuing a new opportunity. Share your experiences and offer advice, connect her with people in your network, and help her build skills and confidence.

5. Self educate

Take the time to learn about the experiences and perspectives of women, particularly those from marginalised communities. Read books, attend workshops, and engage in conversations with women from diverse backgrounds.

6. Volunteer for organisations that support women

Donate your time and skills to organisations that support women's rights and empowerment. This can include organisations that provide education and job training, legal advocacy, and support for survivors of gender-based violence.


Supporting women is a daily commitment that requires all of us to take action. We encourage you to use International Women's Day as a reminder to support the women in your life and your community not just today, but every day. Together we can help to create a world where women can reach their full potential.
