A Day Without a Woman is set to take place on March 8 — International Women's Day — and people around the world are planning their own involvement. With jobs, kids, and other responsibilities, it's not necessarily easy to find your place in the upcoming strike; but if you're wondering how to participate in A Day Without a Woman no matter where you are or what you're doing, rest assured that they are several ways to get your voice heard on what promises to be another epic day for women (and, you know, people in general) around the world.
A Day Without a Woman can be described as a general strike, where participants essentially press pause on the economy to remind the government that they work for the people. Dictionary.com explains that general strikes typically take place at the hands of most of the workers of a country, city, or province. The concept is nothing new, either; women's strikes from history prove that they can absolutely ignite change, and we've been doing it for well over a century.
On March 8, we're all encouraged to take action. Here's how you can be a part of it, no matter where on the globe you're located.
