Be Powerful. Be Yourself.
As a women owned and operated business, we are honored to celebrate International Women’s Month! Zip Hers is the collaborated effort of experienced marathon runner Debbie Mercer and talented artistic textile designer Monica Guerra. These ladies are a driving force for equality in running and outdoor activities!
But Empowering Women Never Stops!
On March 8, 2020, we were proud to celebrate Women’s Day, but the festivities continue all month long and beyond! We want to cherish what Zip Hers is all about: YOU! Powerful athletes, mothers, sisters, lovers of the outdoors, and women of all kinds that inspired the design from Debbie Mercer and Monica Guerra.
“This product means so much more than just a pair of pants or shorts to me. It means that a woman came up with this idea. It empowers women that are going for the gold to try to go for what they believe in, and I just thought it was a phenomenonal product coming from all women.”
-Maggie, one of our loyal customers
Why does it matter so much that Zip Hers was made by women for women? Because we know what it’s like to be a woman on the go, trailblazing the path for women’s equality everywhere! In fact, one of the International Women’s Day’s core missions for 2020 is to “celebrate women athletes and applaud when equality is achieved in pay, sponsorship, and visibility.” We want to help women achieve this goal by removing some of the barriers they face in their athletic lives. Women and their allies have celebrated women’s day since the early 1900s, but in 1977 the United Nations invited member nations to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women’s rights. Since then, countries all around the world have been honoring the achievements of women and working toward gender equality.
Take time to honor those women in your life, remember those who came before us, and those who will build the future!
