International Women’s Day is today, March 8, and women everywhere are turning it into A Day Without a Woman. Here’s what you can do to participate in this important demonstration of economic solidarity!
Here’s how you can join and make today A Day Without a Woman, per the Women’s March official website:
1. Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
2. Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
3. Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman
Organized by the same leaders behind the Women’s March, A Day Without a Woman is considered a general strike that is meant to recognize the value that women bring to the socio-economic system in America. Inequality at the workplace is alive and well, as we all know, but today, women and their allies are challenging that discrimination. You can learn more about it right here!
