Une Femme celebrates game-changing women who have shattered glass ceilings, and gifting a crate of Champagne to each of them from us to celebrate. Each "first Friday" of every month, we'll be featuring and toasting alongside those women on our social media and website. We're awarding entrepreneurs, founders, artists, creatives, activists, elected officials, doctors, scientists, environmentalists, designers, writers, editors, athletes, household-name celebrities, hometown heroes, and beyond who represent strength, power, and positivity. These are women who have made the world (or their world) a better place.
