On the runway, the sorority girls were in control. As they walked their walks and posed, an audience of mostly women encouraged them. "You go girl!" the announcer said. "Strut your stuff!" The applause at this Mother's Day brunch and fashion show at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles is about more than fancy clothes. The applause is for what these girls are becoming off the runway: confident young women who are ready for college, financially literate and prepared for leadership.
