Parity, Peace and Manolo Blahniks
EXCERPTED FROM OUR FORBES WOMAN BLOG:
I understand your passion for shoes, girls. I get it. With 17 pairs angling for closet real estate, I am a card-carrying member of the International Sisterhood of Shoes.
And yet, if a sweet little pair of Via Spiga’s or Cole Hahn’s or (lightening strike me) Manolo Blahnik’s were standing in between you and your economic freedom, or you and peace, could you give up just one excursion per month to Bloomindale’s?
I know it’s painful, but in between your ability to shore up the wage gap and your feminine self-expression, and in between your yearning to change the world and your penchant for changing shoes, I urge you to consider the concept of self-restraint, the unsung heroine of change. Yes change.
