The Ultimate Working Girl

As you may have heard, Liz Claiborne, the working woman’s advocate in her own way, has died from complications of cancer, the New York Times reports.

Her clothing line, Liz Claiborne, gave women affordable clothing options for the workplace in an effort to break through the “glass ceiling,” and effectively compete with their male counterparts…revolutionary at the time.

She was a woman of spunk and strength…a woman’s woman. From the overflow of reports, articles and musings of Ms. Claiborne already, it’s evident that she’ll be missed greatly by her colleagues and the industry that she so loved.
