As a company created for women, by women, we love to celebrate and elevate the success of womankind at all levels. At the end of the year, we’re looking back at some of the achievements and triumphs – both large and small – that made us proud in 2023.
Claudia Goldin’s Nobel Prize
In October at the age of 77, American economist Claudia Goldin was awarded the Nobel Prize for her groundbreaking research on gender wage gaps, becoming the first woman to win the award solo. It was her most recent first in a career of them; in 1990, she became Harvard University’s first tenured female economics professor.
Jamie Lee Curtis’ Overdue Oscar
At 64, Jamie Lee Curtis took home her first Oscar for her supporting role in Everything Everywhere All at Once – the latest notch in a career belt that includes classic films like Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda, and the Halloween franchise.
Temple Grandin’s New Book
Already a pioneer in autism advocacy, Temple Grandin added to her extensive list of published works this year with a new book aimed toward helping kids identify their own unique strengths and perspectives and find a fulfilling career path.
Beyonce’s Iconic Tour
Already the most awarded artist in Grammys history, Beyonce’s power was in full force in 2023 with the kickoff of her Renaissance World Tour, which specifically emphasized and honored Black and LGBTQI+ communities. Her 56-city global tour is estimated to have generated $4.5 billion for the American economy alone.
Taylor Swift’s Friendship Bracelets
TIME Magazine’s person of the year, Taylor Swift, seemed to be everywhere this year – and with 151 performances on her Eras Tour, she virtually was. Aside from the showstopping costumes and three-hour sets, Taylor captured our hearts by cultivating community amongst her fans at every turn in the form of friendship bracelets exchanged by thousands at every concert.
Jenny Nguyen’s Hit Restaurant
After launching her cleverly named concept for a sports bar focused exclusively on women’s sports, Jenny Nguyen was featured in news stories around the country and as a clue on Jeopardy. The Sports Bra, based in Portland, Oregon, brought in viral media attention – and more than $1 million in its first year in business.
Greta Gerwig’s Cultural Phenomenon
As the Barbie movie became a global force this past summer, Greta Gerwig was ascending as well – becoming the first female film director ever to make a film topping $1 billion at the box office.
