Viewing Topic:  Soliciting stories for book-in-progress

1) 12/22/2010 Original Post by Pam Spence 
  Book in process entitled "Red Panties and Cowgirl Boots: What they wore when they walked out the door. True stories of courage and shoes"

These stories are being gathered from women for whom a particular article of clothing became a symbol - an icon - of empowerment, e.g. Karin, who wore a pair of "kick-ass" red cowgirl boots when she walked out of an abusive relationship; Amy who found the courage to succeed as a cosmetic salesperson - when she stumbled upon Super Girl underpants and bought herself a pair. Then there was Sarah who desperately wanted a new dress for her graduation - but her parents were too distraught about the fate of their extended family at the hands of the Nazis to pay attention. Sarah took down her bedroom curtains and made herself a dress, much to the dismay and anger of her parents.

I am in the process of gathering women's stories for the purpose of illustration in this book. Do you have a story to share - or know of someone who does?

Please send me an email at pammy.spence@gmail.com. Thanks (note: no financial compensation available)
