The group that organized the Women's March in January has planned "A Day Without a Woman" to coincide with International Women's Day on Wednesday, March 8th. International Women’s Day has a long history- the first event was over a hundred years ago when women were fighting for the right to vote.
The organizers of “A Day Without A Woman” are encouraging women not to work or spend money as a way to bring attention to their critical contributions to our society.
