Activist, author and programmer Tania Katan has started a powerful movement to inspire women to enter the tech industry. #ItWasNeverADress has transformed a universal symbol for women into something much more meaningful. Katan wanted to “shift perceptions and assumptions about women and the audacious, sensitive, and powerful gestures they make every single day.”
“In science, technology, arts, mathematics, politics, houses of worship, on the streets, and in our homes, insightful women are often uninvited, overlooked, or just plain dismissed”
“It Was Never a Dress will foster necessary conversations, vital voices, and images from around the world that honor ALL women. When we see women differently… we see the world differently!”
Her words speak volumes and I hope this campaign continues to grow to support women in STEM, and to bring awareness to young girls who want to explore all their career options.
Take a look at more campaign photos after the break.
