Special Post: Movember

November 1st marks the beginning of Movember – a worldwide philanthropic effort to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. Gentlemen all over the world grow a mustache for the entire month and collect donations for this great cause.

Growing up with an incredibly smart and inspiring older sister and many female cousins, I was always raised with the mindset that girls could do anything and everything boys could do, if not more. I also went to an all-girls school between the ages of 11 and 18 so I guess you can say I’m a bit of a feminist. My parents always supported our ambitions no matter how ridiculous they may have been.

As I’ve grown up and entered the co-ed world in university I've met many people who challenged my feminist views simply to get a rise out of me. For this reason, I sometimes struggle to maintain the mindset that girls can do everything boys can do. That being said, I thought joining the Movember movement with an incredible team of women would be a great way to show female power while supporting a great cause that is usually dominated by males. Even though we can’t grow a mustache we still have the ability to make a change. If you’d like to donate to the Etiket Mo Sistas please visit our Mo Space and support this great cause. We had a fun photo shoot at Etiket and even lost a few articles of clothing along the way. When we reach our goal of $2,500 you will get to see our risqué photos!
