Being comprised of two-thirds women, the owners of Socksmith have built an organization with a foundation of equality. With a ping-pong table, pool table, and laundry machines at work, they also make sure there is an equal work/life balance. Sometimes we’ll see one another running from the ping pong table, saying “time out!” while they run to catch the ringing phone. Work is always top priority! What is our secret to winning at ping pong? Ping pong socks of course!
A Celebration, Movement, and Constant Reminder
In 1971, the U.S. Congress designated August 26th as Women’s Equality Day. This day was designated to celebrate the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. In addition to this celebration, it also calls attention to the women’s rights movement. While wearing Rosie the Riveter socks and Frida Kahlo socks, we love to celebrate women’s empowerment. Rosie screams, from your head to your toes, “We can do it!” March with pride on Washington, or anywhere, and take your stand on equality.
Powerful Women Need Powerful Socks
When the body is strong, it helps the mind to be strong. Strong women benefit from physical strength building. This notion is nothing new. Just ask these fancy, determined ladies. Slip on our suffragette socks, and keep moving forward. Yoga is a great combination of mental and physical exercise. We even made a wonderfully handy cheat sheet of poses with our yoga socks!
The women’s rights movement has been a long journey, that continues today across the world. Here at Socksmith, we love to support gender diversity. With many strong women working in the office, our feet - often covered in Frida socks, Rosie socks, and suffragette socks - march for equality all day long.
