Brownie understood early on that women needed more options for making a good living. Under her leadership in the 1950s, Tupperware became well-known for offering American women expanded opportunities to earn an income, drive their careers and increase their confidence through building success on their own terms.
Dubbed the “Tupperware Effect,” our entrepreneurial opportunity continues to sweep the globe, helping women, men, families and communities elevate their economic and social status. All 2.9 million Tupperware Brands Sales Force Members comprise a global force for female empowerment that would make Brownie really proud.
