The Choice is Ours

Reproductive rights are women's rights, and we're all about those 24/7. We know they've been hard fought for. That's why now is as crucial a time as ever to band together, exercise our rights to affect change, and ensure bodily autonomy and safe access to reproductive care for every woman. 

We're getting behind grassroots organizations doing the truly risky, hard work at a local level to ensure safe reproductive care and abortion access for one woman after another.

kick in for equal pay

We’re fighting to close the pay gap for women athletes in professional sports. While the women played in Tokyo in 2021, we kicked in $1,000,000 to the US Women's National Soccer Team Players Association to help close the pay gap throughout their pursuit to win the bronze medal in front of the world.

Since the pay gap extends beyond Tokyo, we also established the Kick In for Equal Pay Fund. The contribution period for the fund has closed and now exists as a financial resource for the USWNTPA to utilize in their ongoing efforts to fight for equal pay.

T9 pitchfest

T9 Pitchfest

When women lead, we all win. When women own, the pie gets bigger for everyone. And when women come together, well–there isn’t anything that can stand in our way.

That’s why our annual Pitchfests are so close to our hearts. Pitchfest exists to promote, mentor, and encourage entrepreneurs and activists. At each pitch, we get to invite them to join a unique and rapidly expanding community of women. Changemakers in all forms: nonprofit directors and profitable artists, board members and board riders; PhDs, sailors, chemists, engineers, and–every once in awhile–the particularly exceptional teenager.

In 2022, we’ll host our fifth annual Pitchfest Outdoor Edition, and our second Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition.

Check out both programs – and how to participate – below.

It Started With Pockets: The Round Trip Collection

Pockets are a cultural thing at T9HQ, tracing back to pre-suffragette struggles, and one that we take seriously and very personally. The one-liner version of history on this is that women had their pocket rights revoked and were purposely burdened with purses and bags to slow them down.
