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.
Here are 3 actions you can take on #DayWithoutAWoman:
1. Do not engage in paid & unpaid work
2. Avoid spending money (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses)
3. Wear RED in solidarity
The Women’s March celebrates the labor the International Women’s Strike organizers and others in planning global actions. We are also inspired by recent courageous actions like the “Bodega strike” lead by Yemeni immigrant store owners in New York City and the Day Without Immigrants across the U.S. We applaud the efforts of #GrabYourWallet and others to bring public accountability to unethical corporate practices. As we mark A Day Without a Woman, we do so in support and solidarity of these and all efforts for equity, justice and human rights.
When millions of us stood together in January, we saw clearly that our army of love greatly outnumbers that of fear, greed and hatred. Let’s raise our voices together again, to say that women’s rights are human rights, regardless of a woman’s race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability.
