About this Event

To support UN International Women’s Day 2021 and its theme

” Women in Leadership”.

Grab your shoulder pads and high heels (or what about a fake beard!) and join Meridith Towne as she explores the history of female power dressing and what it means on the world stage today. You'll travel the globe as she explores the cultural influences on what women wear to display their influence, and learn just how important it is to play by the rules - or how powerful it can be to break them!
