The Women’s March organization has scheduled a day of action for March 8, 2017 — A DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN. Read on, to see how you can join in…


From the Women’s March website:

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
