Introducing The Gender Fair Mark

The world’s first and only market based solution for achieving Gender Fairness.  

The Gender Fair Mark informs consumers which companies demonstrate a real and substantial commitment to women’s equality as employees, consumers, and citizens. Companies are analyzed on metrics derived from the UN Empowerment Principals and a small portion are certified and awarded the Gender Fair Mark.

SIGN THE PLEDGE TO SHOP GENDER FAIR

It’s easy to know what products are Fair Trade, cruelty free, or non-GMO. But when it comes to women — who make 85% of all purchases — it’s harder to find out how brands and companies treat their women employees and consumers.

We want information on how to shop responsibly and exercise our collective economic power to support the companies that support women — those certified GENDER FAIR.

Your consumer dollars matter. Companies listen to you. You can make a difference with every purchase. Dollars make change. Sign our pledge to shop gender fair: buying from companies that promote women leaders, maintain family-friendly policies, create stereotype-breaking ads/imagery, and donate to women and girls’ causes.

Signed,

AmY-WILLARD CROSS  Founder 

Amy-Willard Cross developed the first consumer index of corporate' gender equality called Buy Up Index in 2015.  That year, she was named a Global Thinker by Foreign Policy Magazine for her work in "Economic Girl Power."  The Gender Fair platform grew out of that work, and was created as commitment of the Clinton Global Initiative. In 2011, Cross founded VITAMIN W Media, as well as the first women’s midlife magazine in the 1980s. As an editor at major magazines in the U.S. and Canada, she created trend columns, front-of-the-book sections, and handled subjects from business to features, as well as a “live issue.” Cross has also written two books, countless articles, and radio essays. A fourth-generation graduate of women’s college and the great-granddaughter of a suffragist, she attended Wellesley and is named for suffragist Frances Willard. Follow her @amy2pt0.
