Yay! Eager to read everyone's posts! Mine is on working toward a more equalized power dynamic at spas/salons between clients and workers, stemming from a specific experience I had in New York but that provided me with a framework to look for in using services in the future.

I also can't wait to read everyone's posts. I wrote about former First Lady Betty Ford, because she just passed away a few days ago. She rose from humble beginnings and never stopped trying to make the world a better place. I hope it's not too far a stretch for the theme this month.

After missing the last two months, just made this one under the wire. Phew! Can't wait to read everyone else's.

Better late than never, no? I'm loving these posts and can't wait to comment thoroughly!

I just had the most fun re-reading (and then blogging) excerpts from my PhD qualifying exam on Cultural Sociology. I wrote a whole section on fashion and inequality and decided to share the best bits. Hopefully not too dorky!

Interesting- although as someone of mixed parentage I note that 'class' is still different in a way in the US and Europe. Are the issues different? Well, in the case of the assumption some make that social class= personal 'depth', yes - and the point of wealth/education at which one becomes middle class (which, in the UK, is hard to define but not done via money). Interesting nonetheless.
