Smart & Sexy Day

Although it’s disgraceful to say now, it was often the case in the past that people were marginalized just for being smart. This was especially true during the 1980s when “smart people” were often labeled as “dorks,” “geeks,” or “nerds.” People didn’t seem to think smart was sexy back in those days, but fortunately, that whole attitude has changed.

Now the word geek has become somewhat of a compliment and people have begun to realize that smart is sexy. A holiday that wants to drive that home is called Smart and Sexy Day. This is a day that’s observed annually on March 13th and celebrates those people who are both smart and sexy.

The History Of Smart & Sexy Day

This holiday was created a few years ago by the Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits (ACDN). This is a network of grassroots organizations that serve men and women who seek to join or reenter the workforce. They created this holiday to educate the public about the importance of continuing education.

Reasons Why Smart Is The New Sexy
