Jewelry News by Banana Republic : Banana Republic is re-issuing the original "dissent collar" necklace in limited edition to support the work of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Women's Rights Project — the non-profit's arm of the ACLU co-founded by Ruth Bader Ginsburg early in her career, to advocate for gender equality and women's economic rights through systematic legal reform.

Banana Republic's commitment to equality has been core to the brand since the beginning – starting as an explorer brand co-founded by a husband and wife team, whose partnership laid a strong foundation of equality. To this day, equality remains woven into the fabric of the business as well as within that of parent company Gap Inc, which was also co-founded by a husband-wife team who invested equal amounts to start their business. In 2014, Gap Inc. became the first Fortune 500 company to announce equal work for equal pay, with its methodology and data independently validated by a leading gender and diversity firm. The company conducts an annual global pay equality review across its brands using this methodology.

"Banana Republic is designed for life with no boundaries and equality has always been a part of our brand DNA. We value the opportunity to support women's rights and the ACLU Women's Rights Project," says Mary Alderete, Banana Republic Chief Marketing Officer. "As a brand co-founded by a woman and a company that continues to empower strong women, we want to show our appreciation and support to those who are using their voices to champion equality every day."

Banana Republic will re-issue the original "dissent collar" necklace and donate 50% of the purchase price to the ACLU Women's Rights Project. This limited-edition glass stone and brass jeweled black bib necklace with velvet tie is available on for pre-order on January 7, before its January 15 on sale date.
