It's our first with Ellen Lindner, who will also illustrate the next two strips, tracing the economic opportunities available to women outside of the garment industry.

Don't miss the previous in the series, "Fast Fashion," "Let's Go Shopping" and "The Business of Thrift" with Julia Gfrörer, and "Zoned," "Red Tape" and "Outta Sight (Out of Mind)" with Melissa Mendes, or the full archive of our previous three years of strips. Next month, we'll visit an anti-trafficking organization. We know you won't want to miss it.
