International Women's Day | Women in Cashmere Mongolia
International Women's Day is a day to celebrate womanhood no matter where or how we live. It's also a day to remind ourselves of the ongoing gender issues in today's vast and complicated societies, as well as being a day to encoutage better equality and autonomy for women all over the world. To celebrate in my own way, I want to tell you a little bit about the women who work and thrive in the cashmere sector and there's no better place to start than in Mongolia, where women make up 90% of the country's cashmere workforce.
