Walmart has created a section of its website just for women-owned businesses called Empowering Women Together. Shop here for distinctive products created from women worldwide. Walmart is giving women the opportunity and platform to sell their wares. From Walmart:
"Our hope is to provide these hard-working women with opportunities to improve their own lives, while creating new jobs and enhancing the lives of their families and their communities."Watch this video to learn more about the launch of Empowering Women Together:
