- My sincerest apologies to any clients that were hoping to have an appointment tomorrow, but I will be participating in my very first strike and for reasons very dear to my heart. I was once discriminated against by a former employer several years ago (and NO, not Restoration). I was working as a salon manager and wanted to discuss options for a restructure in pay so that it would better reflect the amount/quality of work and dedication I put into his business. I coincidentally had also recently announced I was pregnant. Without discussion, my managerial responsibilities were being handed off to another employee effective immediately. When I questioned why I was essentially being demoted his response was, "Because you're asking for more money and you know... you're going to be taking time off soon." I brought it to his business partner's attention and it fell on deaf ears. I was filled with rage but was also a soon to be mother. I was young and I didn't know what my rights were then. I never should have let it slide and I never should have allowed someone to devalue my worth. Ironically, I saw my former employer tonight and looked at him with incredible disgust and shame- same as I did back then.
So tomorrow I will march in solidarity for women's rights. I will stand up for my beliefs. I will walk for those that can't be there with us. If you cannot join us but would like to show your support, wear red tomorrow!!!! βπ»βπΌβπ½βπΎβπΏ #daywithoutawoman #whyiresist #internationalwomensday #womensstrike

- I& #39;m incredibly guilty of not having cared for politics in the past and blindly thinking it doesn& #39;t really effect me. Boooyyyy was this a rude awakening!!! I& #39;ve been multitasking my mornings by getting ready and listening to #podsaveamerica to get an interesting perspective on recent events, as well as some really captivating interviews including the organizers from #thewomensmarch , Seth Meyers from SNL, the mayor of New York, and Obama himself. It& #39;s well worth the listen friends!!!!
