Supporting women-owned businesses is important for a variety of reasons, including promoting gender equality, by supporting women-owned businesses, you are helping to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs, who still face many obstacles and biases in the business world.

Diversifying the economy with women owned businesses, brings a unique perspective and approach to business, which can lead to new ideas, innovations, and job creation. Supporting women-owned businesses helps to diversify the economy and bring new perspectives to the table.

Many women-owned businesses are run by women who are also mothers, which means that your support is often helping to support families and communities. I am a mother and a small business owner and nearly every business we work with is owned by a woman and has children themselves. 

 Women-owned businesses are often locally-owned and operated, which means that your support helps to keep money in the local economy and supports local jobs. Many of our products are owned by Ojai's own women! 

Women-owned businesses are often mission-driven and focused on making a positive impact on the world. By supporting these businesses, you are helping to advance important causes and make the world a better place.
