They all make functional work clothing, work shoes, or protective equipment for women. I have added the Spotify link to every podcast. If you don’t have Spotify, Google the title of the podcast. You can usually find them on other platforms too. The interviews are all in English, but their stories are about different countries.


Social Entrepreneur – Sarah Calhoun (Red Ants Pants)

When searching for functional and flattering work clothing, Sarah Calhoun was told by manufacturers that women were not an interesting target group. So she developed workwear for women under the name Red Ants Pants. Sarah promoted her clothes through house parties all over America, and her grassroots marketing proved a success. Now that her clothes are selling well, she organizes an annual festival that raises money to help other women with their businesses.

Kate Day and her friend ran a gardening business. Finding decent work clothing was not easy, so the ladies teamed with another friend and developed their own. The reactions they received were so positive, they decided to offer the clothing to the general public under the name DoveTail Workwear.

Contrapreneur – Bella Weinstein (Handyma’am)

Bella Weinstein was a busy hairdresser who enjoyed doing odd jobs in her spare time. Unfortunately, she could never find well-made overalls to wear while pursuing her hobbies. So, Bella took the brave decision and developed one herself. She started fundraising through Kickstarter, raised the money, and now sells her workwear for women through Handyma’am.

Be Epic – Jane Henry (SeeHerWork)

Jane Henry once worked as a consultant in the oil and gas industry, where she witnessed firsthand the sorry state of women’s protective equipment. Pants that fell off and gloves that kept slipping are just two examples. There was also a large staff shortage in this industry, with many women feeling isolated and leaving their roles. With SeeHerWork she now sells work clothing and personal protective equipment for women. With her brand of PPE clothing, her goal is to offer better protection for women, and she also hopes to reduce the personnel shortage in this sector.

Manufacturing Happy Hour – Anastasia Kraft (Xena Workwear)

Anastasia Kraft previously worked in a factory that required her to wear safety shoes. She struggled to find a pair that fit properly, and this inspired her to create her company. Xena Workwear now sells women’s work shoes that are both functional and presentable. The collection has now expanded to include a work jacket.
