In 1912, Elizabeth Arden (née Florence Nightingale, after the woman considered to be the founder of modern nursing) marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City to demand the right to vote and supplied her fellow suffragettes with red lipstick from her fledgling beauty business. Over a century later, the not-so-little brand from the Woodbridge, Ont., native is donating 100 percent of the proceeds from a new red lipstick, fronted by Reese Witherspoon, to UN Women, an organization dedicated to women’s empowerment.
