Celebrate International Women’s Day By Not Showing Up

Hi there, SuzyKnew! readers! Are you ready to get your March 8 International Women’s Day on?

Well, no need to get busy and rush out the door to work or retail therapy. Many here in the U.S. are calling on women – and men- to strike tomorrow. As in, stay home. Don’t go to work – or school. This has prompted school closures in the DC area as well as Chapel Hill-Carborro, NC and perhaps more areas.

The organizers of the January 21 Women’s March on Washington are behind this effort and are calling on women and men saying:

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

  1. Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
  2. Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
  3. Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

SuzyKnew! will be at her day job tomorrow, wearing red. I hope you’re able to take time off and stay home or join SuzyKnew! in your red outfit.
