Welcome to our Dressember 2016 Page!
Every couple days during the month of December, one of us Pacific Northwest girls from Seattle, Portland, Bellingham (and everywhere in-between) will post a blog update to explain why we’ve committed to rocking a frock every single day in December. And yes…it will be cold!
So, why is abandoning comfy jeans, trousers, and jeggings worth it?
Together, we have decided that and re-wearing the same slightly uncomfortable outfits again and again (and eventually beginning to loathe tights) is well worth it, because Dressember provides opportunities to stand together, give, and celebrate hope.
In short, we are wearing a dress every single day to STAND TOGETHER with those who have suffered abuse and oppression because of their femininity, to GIVE to organizations that are fighting slavery, injustice, and inqequality, and to CELEBRATE HOPE for small yet significant political, economic, and social changes that are unfolding in real time.
The Dressember Campaign 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.
Funds raised by the Dressember Campaign go to International Justice Mission and A21. These two organizations work toward advocating for those who have been enslaved, sexually exploited, and/or violently oppressed.
Donations ultimately champion the cause of abolition and safety for women, men, and children worldwide. To donate, please click here.
