  • The crowd at Spokane's Women's March in January. Today is International Women's Day, and some women are participating in Day Without a Woman, by striking, wearing red, and/or refusing to spend money.
March 8 is International Women's Day, and while many will participate in events around this year's theme, Be Bold For Change, others are participating in the Day Without a Woman.

Following up on the Women's March in January, creators of the Day Without a Woman want to show how integral women are to society by having women who are able to go on strike for the day, wear red, and/or not spend money online or in person except at small and women-owned businesses. School districts around the country had to call school off for the day when so many of their teachers announced they would be participating in the one-day strike. (Huffington Post)
