If you've spent any time on social media this past week, you've probably seen the #metoo stories from the thousands of women who have shared their experiences of sexual harassment and assault after the revelations about the dozens of accusations of sexual harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
It was one of the few times when the happenings in Hollywood were truly a reflection of the lives of wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters across the country.
Very few women right here in the good old USA make it through life without being groped, propositioned by a man with power over their lives, or otherwise harassed or assaulted because some man feels it's his right to do so.
I wish I could say that most of us have a built-in support system through our family and friends, but it doesn't always work that way. Sometimes we're too horrified or embarrassed, other times it's because the people who are supposed to have our backs are the ones who are hurting us.
The good news is that, regardless of gender, age, health status, physical, mental, and emotional ability, sexual orientation, sexual identity/expression, socio-economic status, race, national origin, immigration status or religious or political affiliation."
One of the ways the YWCA raises funds for programs and provides assistance to women in need is through a retail consignment shop called Missy's Closet.
The consignment shop sells gently used clothing and other merchandise at affordable prices so people trying to get back on their feet can afford the clothes and household items they need to find jobs and rebuild their lives.
The goal of the fashion show is to promote the store and raise money for the many crisis support programs offered by the YWCA to our community. This is a great opportunity to get out, meet some new people, and promote a good cause.
I'm going to be blunt about this. Manchester needs to support these programs. I don't think I know one woman who doesn't have a #metoo story, and many of us have endured multiple experiences. If you doubt it, go on Facebook and search for the #metoo hashtag. I can guarantee you will be horrified by how many women, many in your own network, who have publicly shared a #metoo story.
This fashion show is your opportunity to make a difference, I hope to see you there.
