Women’s History Month provides an opportunity to look at the exceptional efforts that have been made to earn social, political and financial equality for women, while also acknowledging the ongoing efforts to push the movement forward and make sure past gains aren’t erased. History isn’t just made by sufragettes and feminist authors—innovators in every industry help to provide jobs and spaces for women to shine.
You can help by supporting Chicago’s women-owned businesses, including a feminist sex store, one of Chicago's best breweries and a coffee shop focused on sweet brews. These 10 entrepreneurs and trailblazers showcase the diversity and versatility of women throughout Chicago—and many of them are giving back to their communities in an effort to help lift up others.
