    • Society & Culture

In 2009, a young student, Blythe Hill, challenged herself to wear a dress every day throughout December. Every December since, more people have joined Blythe's challenge, which has become an international cause fighting to end human trafficking. Blythe is now CEO/Founder of Dressember, a nonprofit currently raising millions to support trafficking victims and survivors worldwide. "Dressember is much more than an awareness campaign; we're a social movement rooted in the belief that all people deserve to be free. According to the International Labour Organization, human trafficking is a $150 billion industry. Dressember's goal is to break it.”
