Day Without a Woman

Women's March organizers invite you to celebrate International Women's Day by striking. "In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer A Day Without A Woman. We ask: do businesses support our communities, or do they drain them? Do they strive for gender equity or do they support policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression?" March 8, all day.
