March 8th A Day Without a Woman
The Women’s Movement is encouraging women to stay home from work and to avoid shopping at stores unless they are woman-owned. The intent is to highlight the critical presence of women to the livelihood of society. Here is the official statement from the Women’s March on Washington website:
On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our 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.
Women’s March Website complete with areas for social action.
Consider choosing a couple of areas to influence such as gun violence, reproductive rights, affordable health care, protecting immigrant and LGBTQIA individuals.
The Resistance Calendar put together by filmaker Michael Moore, lists events all over the nation, searchable by region.
