Women Write Washington

Washington, DC is home to more diverse and ambitious women / womyn than ever before. Whether in technology, startups, media, art, politics, or law, a dynamic new generation of Washington women is determining attitudes and ideas. They're also reading, a lot.

Women Write Washington is an event series that celebrates women (and woman-identifying) authors. 



Reduce, reuse, recyle

If you're someone who likes to shop, cares about style, or just wants to feel good about getting dressed in the morning, consignment and resale - or the buying of previously owned clothes at a steep discount - is a missed opportunity for many. I see so many people miss the chance to treat their closet as I do - a rotating library of pieces that come and go. With some of the top brands and trends in 2016 involving clothes that first belonged to someone else (Vetements, vintage Levi's, Reformation, The Vintage Twin, and more), it's a fun way to shop, but also a way to have a smaller carbon footprint, spend less money, and get more out of your clothing. It's a learned skill-set, and one I have taught many. I've done it for friends and acquaintances forever, and now I want to do it for you. Your clothing has a few lives, not one.




In 2013- 2014, Hillary Clinton, then Madame Secretary, was shamed for wearing a timeless and, one would say, trend-transcending hair accessory - the scrunchie. Not all of us have time to do our hair when traveling internationally, or dealing with national security. Not all of us have time to do our hair while we are busy working, cooking, studying, being a mom, cleaning, staying fit - and all of those other tasks that 2015 demands from women. Subject to mockery over the past couple decades, the modest scrunchie has prevailed as an awesome accessory to put your hair up. So instead of making fun of Hillz, let's embrace her favorite hair accessory. So with this, a sense of humor, and two feminist best friends with business acumen -- you get Hillary Scrunchies. Put your hair up for Hillary, support her presidential bid, or order a gift for someone you love, and tag #iwearmyhillary.
