In this first episode of the Red Fire Chicken lunar year, Kelly Okamura reacts to the news reported by Axios that the female White House staff dress code is "Dress like women."*
She shared her findings from the days after the news broke, and offers advice on dressing in the year ahead that is defined as a female metal year based on ancient Chinse atrological forecasts. Here'a a link to one web resource that describes why much of 2017 is a chicken, not rooster year.
Check out the #dresslikeawoman for portraits of what women wear in the Chinese year 4714.
*Note on DJT -- Kelly supports an online action to not refer to Donald Trump by name to not contribute to his online popularity.
This podcast is dedicated to the memory of Mary Tyler Moore, who's style and smile inspired generations of women.

Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
