On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and their allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.
In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women’s March, join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, 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. Recognizing that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting. Support gender justice.
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
A Day Without a Woman reaffirms the commitment to the Principles of Unity, which were collaboratively outlined for the Women’s March. 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. So #GrabYourWallet and others to bring public accountability to unethical corporate practices. The Women’s March stands in solidarity with the International Women’s Strike organizers, feminists of color and grassroots groups in planning global actions for equity, justice and human rights.
When millions of Americas stood together in January, we all saw clearly that the army of love greatly outnumbers that of fear, greed and hatred. On March 8th be part of the solution, raise your voice along with thousands of others once 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.
