One Dress One Year: One Girl's Stand Against Human Trafficking by Bethany Winz with Susanna Foth Aughtmon

Goodreads | Amazon
One girl. One dress. One year. For freedom. 

When sixteen-year-old Bethany Winz learned about the millions of men, women, and children around the world trapped in slavery, her stomach churned. How can anyone do that to another human being? she wondered. And why aren't we doing something?

This is the story of Bethany's "something."

Journey with her as she wears the same black dress every day for a year to focus attention on the lack of choices people in modern-day slavery face and raise money to help end human trafficking. As Bethany works to bring freedom to people worldwide, she'll discover how much she too needs freedom. You'll be inspired not only to change the world in your own way but also to experience the life-changing freedom of God's irrepressible love.

The title of One Dress One Year: One Girl’s Stand Against Human Trafficking shares right away much of the book’s perspective and purpose. Bethany Winz decided to wear one black dress for an entire year in order to raise awareness about modern-day slavery and now shares her experiences with the Dress. Her initiative and passion to make a difference shine throughout this book and inspire readers to do something, too. I enjoyed reading One Dress One Year and discovering Bethany’s desire to take a stand. Overall, it’s a quick but worthwhile read.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of One Dress One Year and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
