Get out those ruby red slippers today. Or heels. Or sneakers! The Red Shoe Movement is here, and it encourages women to wear red shoes to work on Tuesdays to show their support for other women in the workplace. Men are encouraged to wear red ties. The movement officially launched in New York City at The New York Times on March 26 with more than 200 participants wearing their red heels. Check out www.redshoemovement.com
