did you ever want to be a part of something bigger than you? like, something that could make a difference?
i know that i have. and i also know that it can be hard & scary. maybe you can't find a cause that you like or an organization that you want to join. so because of  that, you sit silently wanting to participate but never actually doing anything.

but ladies,
now's the time to do something.

human trafficking is a really prevalent problem today. many people look at it like 'women's lib.' but it's so much more that that. girls, women, and even men are being sold into slavery - sexual slavery. all over the world, people are being bought at a fixed price, for their bodies. it includes but isn't limited to prostitution or sexual exploitation but also includes forced labor and the like.

i'm choosing to participate in a movement called Dressember.
i'm going to be wearing a dress for 31 days in December.
i'm choosing to be a voice for the voiceless.

"Dressember is a collaborative movement leveraging fashion and creativity to restore dignity to all women. 
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. 
Dressember exists to inspire and empower a global community of like-minded women who are locking arms to face one of the greatest injustices of our time.

The heart of Dressember is freedom-- that every woman has the right to live a vibrant and autonomous life."

i'm choosing to say yes to equality, freedom, and human rights.
will you join me?
