The look above was inspired by the fictional WWII home front hero Rosie the Riveter. The face of the movement where women rose to meet the needs of the USA at the time. This Memorial Day, I’m thinking about how women today are rising to overcome current issues brought to the forefront of headlines.

Sometimes, it feels like the state of our country and our government is an obstacle rather than a means of empowerment for its female citizens. However, that makes the stories of today’s women even more powerful as they find success even in the face of adversity.

I also want to recognize that it is Military Appreciation Month, and express my gratitude for the women and men that have served this country.
