The inspiration for this piece is based on the motto that “looks aren’t everything”. That becoming an independent, self-sufficient woman over a lifetime takes more than good looks and fabulous hair. So, that might seem pretty obvious to most people, but if you are woman raised in a household that places physical attractiveness above the pursuit of skills and knowledge, you could presumably become a client of the DWC one day. And all evidence says that the DWC does a fine, fine job helping women build job skills and character. -Andrea
