Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and in accordance there will be an observation of A Day Without A Woman. This observation seeks to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women continue to face. Women play an indispensable role in the daily functions of life in all of society, through paid & unpaid, seen & unseen labor.
Individuals can participate in a number of ways:
- Women to refrain from paid and unpaid work
- We ask all people to refrain from shopping in stores or online. Exceptions include local small businesses and women-owned businesses that support us. (#GrabYourWallet has a list of corporations we do not support throughout the year.)
- Wear red in solidarity with the strike.
- We ask that our male allies lean into care giving on March 8th, and use the day to call out decision-makers at the workplace and in the government to extend equal pay and adequate paid family leave for women.
