What is the #DayWithoutAWoman about?
“On International Women's Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.
The Women's March supports the feminists of color and grassroots groups organizing the International Women’s Strike on International Women's Day, March 8th, 2017. In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women's March, together we will mark the day by recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.
Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:
Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman” -womensmarch.com/womensday
On March 8, I will be wearing red, taking the day off from all my jobs, and avoiding shopping that day. But, I will always support shopping and supporting these amazing businesses that are woman-led/owned, and support women in the United States and around the world.
