Oh. . .yes it is!!!
I’m just little ol’ me but I’ve made the commitment to the Dressember cause! Yes, I am wearing a dress (and pantyhose – gasp!) every day this December! Why? Of course to raise awareness and funds for Dressember.
From the Dressember mission statement:
“Dressember uses fashion to advocate for women who’ve been exploited for their femininity. As women take on the creative challenge of wearing a dress for the 31 days of December, they are advocating for the inherent dignity of all women.
In 2013, Dressember took on new meaning: opposing the worldwide trafficking and exploitation of women. In its first year as a fundraising campaign, Dressember aligned with International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that works to rescue victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and other forms of violent oppression. Those who participate in Dressember are supporting the abolition of modern day slavery. Beginning in 2015, the Dressember campaign will expand to partner with other anti-trafficking organizations.
THE HEART OF DRESSEMBER IS FREEDOM– THAT EVERY WOMAN HAS THE RIGHT TO LIVE A VIBRANT AND AUTONOMOUS LIFE.”
Human trafficking and exploitation are IMPORTANT issues EVERYDAY. . . not just this month. . .these are important issues every day of every month AND not for women only!
