Luckily I have some
Several other gals at work tied one on today...more than are pictured here. And these girls, unlike others of my generation, see aprons for what they really are.
One gal said about Apron Day..."What? is that something some man came up with to keep women in the kitchen cooking?" Yes, aprons, by default, are a symbol of domesticity...but not in the derogatory sense she meant. Aprons, for me anyway, also represent the generations of strong hardworking women who came before me...those women who donned their aprons and worked on the farms and in the fields, women who, during WWII, worked in the factories and returned home at night to care for their families, who labored at home to provide a good life for their children and husbands. And aprons are a symbol for the strong hard working women that we are today..be it in our homes, in the workplace or both.
