doyenne (n, singular): the oldest, most experienced, and often most respected person* of all the people involved in a particular type of work
Doyenne Skateboards is an ungendered skateboarding brand entirely made by women. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, Doyenne is dedicated to promoting a positive paradigm shift within and outside of the skateboarding industry through their unique brand activism: designing ungendered clothes and accessories for everyone.
Doyenne expressly supports the inclusion and participation of women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, POC, and people with disabilities. Doyenne’s aim is to create a bigger space for them within subcultures but especially in skateboarding.
The profits from Doyenne’s summer 2018 sales were donated to Skatepal, a non-profit organisation that supports the young people of Palestine through skateboarding.
