The month of March celebrates Women’s History Month. Since 1980, the one-month-long event started as a feminist push for equal gender access to education and jobs. A unique part of Pinterest is celebrating special occasions like Black History, Christmas, Halloween, Latin Heritage, etc. The platform also holds an annual Creator’s Festival and Pinterest Presents.
Today, Pinterest celebrates Women’s History Month. In honor of women who actively represent pinners’ values, the platform is supporting 10 underrepresented women businesses through Pinterest Elevates. Pinterest is spending $100,000 for monetization and strategic support on the following brands:
- Alder New York, a skincare company owned by Nina Zilka
