So my friends told me about a really cool thing called Dressember. Basically I am wearing a dress every day for the month of December to raise awareness and money for those in bad situations because of the fact that they are a woman. Whether that is domestic violence, sexual slavery, or just abandonment because their society does not view women as equal to men. Anyway, if you want to read into it further and possibly support here is my personal link

Not a bad idea. They shoulda picked a warmer/less windy month though. Dresses b dangerous.

Slinky, I agree sometimes (especially living in Idaho) but apparently December is one of the top months for women to be abandoned/sold. Plus, I dont think the play on words works any other time.

That’s really cool!

I think it’s cool, I’m not trying to totally bash it; I will just say that it’s not as good an idea in regards to girls who don’t like skirts/dresses. Lots of girls simply prefer pants and more casual stuff, and it doesn’t make them any less of a woman. 🙂

It has NOTHING to do with wearing a dress to be a woman. It simply one way to raise awareness for human trafficking and other abuse to women simply because wearing a dress is a feminine thing. Not saying not wearing one isn’t but if you look at it from a social perspective there are degrees of feminine vs masculine. Wearing a dress is on the feminine side, not to mention wearing something typically worn in the summer in the winter draws attention.
