International Women's Day

In honor of Equal Pay Day, here's what I wore for International Women's Day (makes sense, right?).

Blazer, Dress, Boots: Hand-Me-Down, Button-Down: Swapped, Scarf: Thrifted,
Sunglasses: Call it Spring

As you can see, it was super windy here on International Women's Day, and it was also windy today. Coincidence?

For those of you (like me), who didn't know, equal pay day is set each year to mark how much farther into the new year women have to work to make the same as men do in the previous year. April 4th is that day (in the US). That's really lame. Apparently, it always takes place on a Tuesday because that's how far into the new week women have to work to make as much as men do in one week. Again, really lame. 

How do we fix this? Check out the National Committee on Equal Pay's site, but essentially, we can contact our local representatives and express how equal pay is important to us. On a growing list of things to contact my local representatives on, this one is pretty important. 

It's not just about the money; it's about all women being recognized for their worth.
