Washington, D.C. - February 17, 2021 - This International Women's Day, Eone is rallying its community to fight for women's rights. They hope to ignite change through a month-long campaign, #HowYouSeeMe, which encourages women to share stories of empowerment and success.
Like the Eone watch itself, which was designed to be inclusive of people with vision impairments, the campaign highlights women with disabilities. Eone's second spokesperson; Christine Ha, will kick off the campaign with her story about the barriers she overcame in becoming the first blind winner of MasterChef.
Christine stated, "International Women's Day is about gender equality and inclusivity, to give everyone equal respect and treatment, platform and voice. Regardless of ability, race, religion, or sexual orientation." Together, Eone and Christine speak out against stereotypes and the obstacles that come from social inequality. Eone encourages the public to join the effort in the following ways:
- Learn. Watch the #HowYouSeeMe video, which features Eone's spokesperson Christine Ha and Paralympian Mallory Weggemann, and three other athletes.
- Rally Others. Write #HowYouSeeMe on your hand, cover your eyes, and share a picture of yourself on social media. This symbolizes our challenge to recognize beauty and strength beyond what meets the eye. In the caption, tell your story and any personal challenges that you've overcome.
