Take Your Daughter And Son To Work Day 2014

Thursday, April 24th, was Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, an educational program in the United States where parents are encouraged to bring their children to work.  This extremely popular program was started in 1993 by feminist and activist, Gloria Steinem and the Ms. Foundation for Women.  Originally called ‘Take Our Daughters To Work,’ it was expanded to include boys in 2003.  We, at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, really have fun preparing for this day, although sadly, I missed it because I was in China.  In any event, we had a really good turnout.  From 9:30 until 4:00, the daughters and sons traveled between various activities including interview your parent/child, crafting, PetSmart Design Challenge, gardening, yoga, and kitchen recipes.  I'm told that everyone had a great time and I hope I can be there next year!
