The organizers of the Women’s March on Washington have released three simple guidelines for those planning to participate in the “A Day Without a Woman” strike scheduled for International Women’s Day on March 8.
First, the organizers have asked that women truly take the day off, abstaining from paid or unpaid labor. Second, participants are asked to avoid shopping on the day — with exceptions made for small, women-owned and minority-owned businesses. Third, organizers ask that participants wear red to show solidarity with the strikers.
In the announcement made on the Women’s March website, the organizers also expressed solidarity with “the feminists of color and grassroots groups organizing the International Women’s Strike” as well as “all efforts for equity, justice and human rights.”
