While Honor calls this a discount for International Women’s Day flash sale, there’s nothing particularly different about this in comparison to previous sales, which also had discounted pricing. While the main criticism around Women’s Day is brands relying on tokenism, Honor’s offer is so completely unrelated to the women’s rights movement in India that it borders on opportunistic.
