Women have only reached at best 18% leadership representation in any US sector, and yet we hold about 80% of the consumer purchasing power in this country. If we must shop, let’s shop to the top.
When you buy on Shoptimize, everything you purchase will advance women. We don’t just advance women-led businesses, we give at least 1% of our after-tax profits each year to nonprofit organizations that advance and empower women and girls.
You can buy on any site (or in any store), but at Shoptimize, you can buy the change you want to see in the world. When women “crowdshop” on Shoptimize, we not only advance women, we send a signal to other retailers that we care about advancing women.
Research shows that at the current rate of women advancing to leadership, we will not reach gender parity with men for over 125 years and perhaps as long as 475 years. We don’t have that long to wait if we want to see ourselves, our daughters and future women progress. So, if we have surpassed men in consumer spending power (70%+) let’s use that overwhelming spending power to tip the leadership scales. If we must shop, let’s shop to the top!
We showcase products from women-led businesses (where women hold 50% or more of leadership) and help these businesses grow.
We give 1% of our profits each year to nonprofit organizations that advance and empower women and girls.

For our daughters, our granddaughters, nieces and the women who we will never meet, but whose breakthroughs we will claim as our own, let’s do this thing. If we must shop, let’s shop to the top.
