Okamura, K. (n.d.). What We Wear Matters and Why. Rabble.


In this GooderGoods podcast, host Kelly Okamura discusses why clothes matter and why it is important to think before we make purchases. She highlights the discourse pertaining to various attire such as the niqab and national identity. She further discusses how the debate about the niqab was emphasized while conversations about Indigenous Red Dress Project were diminished. Okamura notes that the clothes we wear help us connect with the world around us as they send a message.
