Eleanor Estes’ classic children’s book, The Hundred Dresses, is the story of an immigrant schoolgirl who is teased by her classmates for her accent, name, clothes, and her family’s poverty. The book explores themes of acceptance, inclusion, art, empathy, and finding the courage to stand up for what is right. The Hundred Dresses Project was inspired by Estes’ book, and is a response to the short-sighted political rhetoric and actions that have tainted our culture, our country, and our world.
