Twice a year for at least 10 years, I have organized a drive at my job to collect women's career clothes. Donations go to Martha's Closet in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where they are available for women needing appropriate clothes for job interviews and for starting out in their new jobs. I feel good about facilitating the re-use of lots of good clothes, and about helping women who might need a good break for once.
It's empowering for me to think about and acknowledge publicly the absurdity of stereotyping and labeling others. We're all different in many ways, but we're all the same in many more.
