A Day Without a Woman Is Happening and Here Are the Deets You Need

Though the Women’s March back in January was beyond impressive (in fact, it was a history-making event), you should know that it was only the beginning. The movement is still working hard to make sure that women’s rights are protected in these turbulent times. That’s the reason behind “A Day Without a Woman,” which is coming up soon and is intended to give the country a look at what our society would be like without the contributions and participation of, well, women.


“On March 8th, International Women’s Day, women and our allies will act together creatively to withdraw from the corporations that harm us and find ways to support the businesses, organizations and communities that sustain us,” the website explains before asking folks to consider three questions:

1. Do businesses support our communities, or do they drain our communities?

2. Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression?

3. Do they align with a sustainable environment or do they profit off destruction and steal the futures of our children?

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 our communities? Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression? Do they align with a sustainable environment or do they profit off destruction and steal the futures of our children? We saw what happened when millions of us stood together in January, and now we know that our army of love greatly outnumbers the army of fear, greed and hatred. On March 8th, International Women’s Day, let’s unite again in our communities for A Day Without A Woman. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing more information on what actions on that day can look like for you. In the meantime, we are proud to support Strike4Democracy's #F17 National Day of Action to Push Back Against Assaults on Democratic Principles. This Friday, February 17th, gather your friends, families, neighbors, and start brainstorming ideas for how you can enhance your community, stand up to this administration, integrate resistance and self-care into your daily routine, and how you will channel your efforts for good on March 8th. Remember: this is a marathon, not a sprint. #DayWithoutAWoman #WomensMarch
