Dress for Success empowers women with Your Hour, Her Power campaign

International non-profit organization Dress for Success is again marking International Women’s Day through its annual Your Hour, Her Power campaign. 

By giving the equivalent of just one hour of pay, a woman is supported by access to important Dress for Success programs, services, and tools that can help her achieve economic advancement. Your Hour, Her Power helps to #BreakTheBias.

Creating life-changing opportunities

Inspired by the belief that when a woman has access to opportunities her life can be changed and she becomes powerful beyond measure, Dress for Success created a 60 second video providing 60 reasons to join its Your Hour, Her Power campaign - including:

  • empowering a woman helps her, her family, her community and the global economy
  • Dress for Success has been supporting women for 25 years and continues to grow
  • the pandemic worsened gender inequality
  • diversity, equity and inclusion are important
