On Wednesday, March 8, women across the country will partake in "A Day Without A Woman," a general strike organized by the Women's March to demonstrate the importance of women in the workforce and the world. These 11 last minute red items for A Day Without A Woman are a perfect way to support the strike to show solidarity with women around the nation.
The Day Without A Women general strike wasn't without criticism upon its initial inception, with many accurate citing the strike as being non-inclusive. As the strike entails taking a day off work in the middle of the week, being able to do so implies a financial privilege many women do not have. However, the organizers have since released a multitude of ways to support those striking.
One of those ways is to wear red. According to the Women's March Instagram, red is a color of solidarity as it symbolizes love, action, and energy. Plus, red is the color associated with the labor movement, making it perfect for the A Day Without A Woman strike.
