Here’s How You Can Realistically Participate In The ‘Day Without A Woman’ Strike

After an unprecedented turnout in January, Women’s March organizers are calling on women and their allies to strike once more on Wednesday, March 8. This strike will coincide with International Women’s Day and will work in tandem with the International Women’s Strike, which has been in the works long before Trump won the presidency.

According to the Women’s March website, there are a few primary ways you can participate in this Wednesday’s general strike:

1. Women take the day off work—whether you are paid or unpaid.

2. Refrain from shopping for the day—or if you must shop, choose small, women- and minority-owned businesses.

3. Wear red in solidarity with those participating in and supporting the strike.
