This Wednesday, March 8 is International Women’s Day (IWD). IWD celebrates social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call-to-action to accelerate gender parity.
At Brush Dance, we celebrate women every day of the year. The items we publish are (mostly) designed with women in mind. Women make up more than 80% of our customers. Four out of five of our employees are women.
We pay fair wages, offer flexible schedules, and contract with vendors who do the same. We don’t do this because someone is watching us – we do these things because it is the right thing.
Whether you’re a hellraiser, a boss lady, or a delicate flower, raise your voice for women.
Every person can play a part in driving better outcomes for women. World leaders, business professionals, LGBTQ+, black, white, purple, everyone. And you know what? Better outcomes for around 50% of the population means better outcomes for all of us.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month was founded in 1985. The famous pink ribbon came along in 1993 when the Estee Lauder Company established The Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ever since, pink ribbons and October have served as reminders that all women need to be screened for breast cancer.
As women, we have a tendency to not take care of ourselves. To put the needs (and even the tiny wants) of others before our own.
Some women may think they won’t get breast cancer because it doesn’t run in their family.
Others may feel like there’s just no time to get to the doctor for a screening.
It’s important that every woman get screened for breast cancer. You’re important. You owe to yourself and to all of the people who love and rely on you to take care of your body.
Please get screened and talk with your provider about any family history and the appropriate schedule of screenings for you.
All of our Weekly Planners have the same uncomplicated interior design (in varying colors). We feature one week per spread and handy lined spaces for each day of the week. Brush Dance Weekly Planners also have an elastic band to keep things tidy.
I love love love that the year runs straight through these books with no stopping. At the front of the Planner, we feature 14 monthly planning pages. I’ll show you my planner and how I use the pages in a future post.
Brush Dance Date Books have been a favorite for many years. These hardcover books feature monthly illustrated tabbed dividers, one week per page, a nifty pocket, and (again) an elastic band to keep your stuff together.
I’ve decided to use a Weekly Planner this year. The harder decision is going to be which one!
Our Date Books measure 6.5″ x 8.5″ – they would be beautiful for a desk or taken with you in larger bags.
I know I’ll be going with a Weekly Planner for the coming year (I can’t resist the size and simplicity). I just need to figure out which one.
