When I first read the words, “It was never a dress,” they didn’t sit well with me. I love dresses! But when my friend Kathy sent me more info, I began to appreciate the slogan.
I like what this software company, Axosoft, is doing to empower women, especially girls, through the company’s support of the STEAM program.
Here’s what they say on their website:
In science, technology, arts, mathematics, politics, houses of worship, on the streets, and in our homes, insightful women are often uninvited, overlooked, or just plain dismissed. Through storytelling, community building, innovation and creative disruptions, #ItWasNeverADress will foster necessary conversations, vital voices, and images from around the world that honor ALL women.
For a few months of my childhood, I dreamed of becoming a geologist, thanks to a shiny book my mom got me on rocks and minerals. What was your science dream? Did it become a reality?
Take a few minutes to watch this video about It Was Never a Dress.
Giveaway: I’m buying a mug to give away. According to the website: “Profits from It Was Never a Dress merchandise will go towards a scholarship for need-based, under-represented individuals entering the STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).”
