Women are incredible beings.
Whether it's those who are pioneers and leaders at the forefront of change, or those raising families and working tirelessly, there's nothing women can't do.
And, more often than not, they do so without boasting and without thanks.
It's these kinds of women, and all those in between, that we celebrate on International Women's Day, come March 8 every year.
While we've come a long way since the first IWD in 1911, there's still a long way to go and we mustn't forget that the day is about more than just celebrations.
One in three women have still experienced physical and/or sexual abuse, women make up just 23.8 per cent of parliaments across the world and despite the "myth", there is still a gender pay gap in Australia.
Just one of many ways you can make a difference this IWD, is with a little retail therapy (you don't have to tell us twice).
So, we've rounded up some of the best brands giving back this International Women's Day and throughout the month of March.
For the sixth year in a row Mimco will be donating 100 per cent (yep, ONE HUNDRED) of its profits on International Women's Day to Our Watch, the national leader in prevention of violence against women and their children.
If that's not reason to shop, we don't know what is.
If you haven't checked out CASETiFY's gorgeous offering of phone cases and accessories, we recommend you do so ASAP.
While you're there pick up an item from their Her Impact Collection which sees 100 per cent of profits go to the Malala Fund for the entire month of March.
The Australian jewellery label is partnering with i=Change to give $5 from every purchase to a charity of your choice on March 8.
While cult sunglass brand Quay isn't directly donating profits from sale on the day, they are donating $100,00USD (approx. $127,000AUD) directly to charity, Girls Inc. which is absolutely nothing to scoff at.
It's a great reason to support their campaign and indulge in a new set of shades, of which you can shop here.
To celebrate IWD, the much loved jewellery brand is giving back to the community through its partnership with Dress For Success.
Dress For Success is a global not-for-profit organisation that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the developmental tools to help women thrive in both work and life.
So grab yourself a pair of the stunningly chic Michael Hill Sterling Silver Heart Stud Earrings for $AUD19 and $10 of the sale will go towards Dress For Success.
For every order placed between now and Saturday 13th of March, fashion label Shona Joy will donate $5.
The brand is brimming with beautiful styles from everyday staples to stunning statement pieces.
This jewellery brand offers some of the most stunning dainty pieces that are quality gold and silver, but also won't break the bank.
The brand is giving shoppers free gifts when they spend over a certain amount as well as donating $2 from every purchase made.
Steele has become a wardrobe staple for every stylish woman thanks to their fabulous and free-flowing pieces.
For the entirety of March, Steele is donating $10 from every purchase in partnership with SisterWorks.
