The economic fallout of the pandemic has been more than a recession; it’s been a she-cession.
Women represented more than half of the workforce laid off at the onset of the pandemic, and more than 2 million women have dropped out of the labor force since October. The percent of American women working is the lowest it has been since 1988.
There has never been a more critical time to help women re-enter the workforce and achieve stability and security through financial independence.
This month, as we celebrate Women’s History Month, we are proud to empower women through a partnership with Dress for Success for the Your Hour, Her Power campaign.
Join Alpha Sigma Tau National President Jamie Jones Miller and countless other Sisters and friends with a donation of just one hour of pay.
Together, we will do everything in our power to combat the she-cession by giving women access to programs, services and tools that will help them achieve financial independence.
“As we celebrate Women’s History Month, Alpha Sigma Tau is proud to join forces with Dress for Success for the Your Hour, Her Power campaign. I can’t think of a more fitting way to honor our Founders and to truly live our mission: To invest in women by instilling the skills necessary to navigate life, and inspire members to enrich their own lives and the lives of others.”

About Your Hour, Her Power
Dress for Success' annual International Women’s Day / Women’s History Month campaign, Your Hour, Her Power, calls on individuals to give just one hour of pay to help women achieve financial independence and upward mobility.
They have expanded the campaign concept in 2021 by honoring women in positions of power throughout the month of March to highlight the importance and impact of female leadership when it is most needed. One of these women is Alpha Sigma Tau National President, Jamie Jones Miller (Psi 1995/James Madison).
