Zora & Amelia offers gifts that empower women & girls to be themselves - smart, confident, bold, and extraordinary. Here's how we got started.
When I was pregnant, I was sure I was having a boy. I had my mom instincts, I thought, and my husband and I decided we weren't finding out until his or her arrival. That way we'd avoid gender stereotyped items and have a huge surprise. When my daughter Zora arrived in June 2016 we were floored - and immediately pink everything arrived at our house.
We really had to search for clothing, books, and toys that were gender neutral - and, more importantly, gender empowering. The day of the Women's March on Washington, when Zora and I marched with my family and hundreds of thousands of others down the streets of my city in January, I decided to launch an online store that curated all the awesome products I've found, plus creations of some amazing makers, to celebrate and empower women & girls to be themselves - smart, confident, bold, and extraordinary.
I hope this can be a one-stop-shop for gifts for women & girls in your life - and get yourself a little something while you're at it! Here's to persisting no matter what obstacles come into our journey to shatter the glass ceilings in our worlds.
