The HerStory Sock Club was born out of a desire to learn more about women who have made a difference, the unsung heroines. In 2021, HerStory is all about showcasing women who've devoted their lives to making the world a better place, paving the way for the next generation of world-betterers. We're quite excited about the list of fabulous Hers being highlighted this year, and can’t wait to tell their story in color!
July honors Geraldine Roman. Geraldine Roman is a role model for girls and women (heck, for people interested in being good human beings) everywhere. She is a force to be reckoned with in the political landscape of the Philippines, where she was the first trans person elected to Congress in 2016. Plus, she wore the most amazing princess dress of our childhood dreams in her official portrait!
Knitted Wit celebrates the beauty inherent in this wonderful woman, and the beauty that is the Phillipines themselves with July's colorway, Waling-Waling. Inspired by the Waling-Waling orchid, considered to be the Queen of Philippine flowers.
