Empowering Women Through Style: Viscata Celebrates International Women’s Day

On March 8th, the world will be celebrating International Women’s Day, a landmark event that has now become a truly global celebration. It recognizes the remarkable contributions of women around the world in every field imaginable. It’s a powerful reminder for us all of the work we still have left to do if we are ever to reach gender equality. Not every woman is an international fashion icon, but every woman matters. Viscata shoes are made for confident, comfortable, successful women. Women who dare to be different. Women who aren’t afraid to seize the moment. Women like you.


What is the theme for International Women's Day 2024?

This year, International Women’s Day is built around the theme “Inspire Inclusion”. This global campaign emphasizes why it is so important that we all value and understand the advantages of furthering women’s inclusion and that we constantly work towards the empowerment of women. This is how we will build a better world. When women are included, they experience a sense of belonging, relevance, and personal authority. So, we invite you to join us in our support of the global mission to forge a more inclusive world for women by actively promoting their participation in all fields of endeavor. It’s time for us all to start breaking the mold and raising expectations. That’s a cause we can all believe in.

How do women celebrate International Women's Day?

International Women’s Day is a global occasion celebrated annually on March 8th to recognize the achievements, resilience, and contributions of women across various spheres of life. Women all over the world will choose to celebrate it in their own individual way. Global awareness days like this have the power to raise the profile of women’s issues, not just globally, but locally too. All around the world from Timbuktu to Taiwan and from San Francisco to Seoul, women will be participating in events, discussions, and campaigns to raise awareness about the important issues of gender equality, women’s rights, and the challenges they face every day. They share stories, statistics, and inspirational messages to foster understanding and solidarity. Others will choose to express their feelings in a more assertive way, organizing and attending marches, rallies, and demonstrations to advocate for gender equality, reproductive rights, and an end to violence against women.


The power of style

Style is much more than just a clothing choice, it’s a form of self-expression, confidence, and identity. For women, fashion choices can be personally empowering. What women wear is a great way of allowing them to embrace their uniqueness and for them to communicate their strength to the world. Viscata understands this deep connection and we aim to empower women through our huge choice of women’s espadrille shoes, wedge espadrilles, espadrille heels, wedge shoes, espadrille sandals, espadrille flats and platform espadrilles. We also have beautiful closed toe espadrilles, open toe espadrilles, jute sole espadrilles as well as sustainable shoes. Our range of authentic Spanish espadrilles are made for women who dare to be different. Every pair of our authentic shoes are handmade in Spain by Spanish artisans, most of whom are women. Whether you’re a lady of leisure or an international business woman, our customers have a certain sense of style and a worldly outlook. They are comfortable in their own skin. They are natural adventurers, comfortable with their Mediterranean style.
