In our first footwear collection, prinkshop has partnered with Saucony to support women who run for sport or for political office. With our collaboration WOMEN RUNNING, we are rallying behind women who are running for good, towards their dream, and fighting for a place on the podium.
Women are half the population and yet are a fraction of those who hold political office. When women run, they run for change, for freedom, for justice, and for equality. Studies have shown that women in elected office focus on policies that emphasize quality of life and reflect the priorities of families, women, and ethnic and racial minorities. And empowering women spurs productivity and economic growth.
The WOMEN RUNNING campaign benefits She Should Run, a non-partisan, non-profit organization, that encourages women to consider running for political office and gives them the tools and resources to step up to the starting line. Saucony will be donating 10% of the Women Running sales to She Should Run to further the work they do to support women’s leadership in politics.
