LF x WOMENS PRISON ASSOCIATION
We are beyond excited to introduce our 2021 International Women's Day capsule, a partnership with DADA Daily and the Women's Prison Association.
Started in 1845 by abolitionist, Abby Hopper Gibbons, WPA has been fighting alongside women who have been marginalized by violence, poverty, racial bias, and systems of oppression. Did you know that:
- The number of women in U.S. state prisons has increased by 834% over the last four decades, more than twice the rate experienced by men.
- 80% of women in jail are mothers.
- 82% of women in jail are held on non-violent charges and, often, violent charges are not accurate reflections of women’s experiences at the time of arrest.
- Prison policies and interventions are primarily designed for men.
Shop our capsule below to help support the work of WPA. $100 from each sweater and 20% of each DADA + LF Chocolate boobs will be donated to the organization.
