BECAUSE WE CAN DO IT
We are a group of friends that will dare to dress up as Rosie the riveter and go out on Singapore streets to raise awareness and remember our community that WE CAN DO IT!
Rosie the riveter is an icon that represents women working on factories and shipyards during WWII. As women started taking over jobs previously done by men, strength and economic power ceased to be categories only forgranted for men. This movement challenged the status quo and set the tone for contemporary woman's movements.
Rosie symbolises women's union, women's empowerment and women's equality.
Help us encourage more women to achieve economic independence by sponsoring our campaign.
BECAUSE WE CAN DO IT you will find us dressed up as our hero this Friday 26 @ Los Primos : come and hang out with The Rosies, have a special price on F&B, take a picture with us or simply become a donor clicking on the amounts bellow.
SEE YOU THERE!
The #Dare2Dress 2016 campaign is a fund-raiser to help unemployed women find confidence and work that will build a future for themselves and their families. Join in the challenge by dressing up as your hero/heroine at work, school, or play and ask your supporters to donate to our cause. Your participation and donation will go to Image Mission Ltd to run the Dress for Success Singapore programme.
