It's worth the risk for these women to march

Republican women have largely dismissed Wednesday's strike as counterproductive, which was scheduled to occur on the annual International Women's Day.

March 8 is International Women's Day, and this year the organizers of the January Women's March have declared it as a "Day Without a Woman".

How will you be participating in International Women's Day and A Day Without a Woman? They also ask that women give any of their own employees a paid day off.

Earl said the Pledge For Parity campaign is a good way to connect with different people who support this common cause.

"What we're doing is trying to take that one step further because we are black women", Winter said.

Standing in solidarity with Kane is Don Mahaney, the owner of Scratch Food & Beverage in the Pittsburgh's Troy Hill neighborhood.

At least a thousand women gathered at 5th Ave and 59th St to protest the unfair treatment of women. As part of the day of action, Women's March organizers are holding a rally at noon in New York City's Central Park.

Many prominent women's websites, including Bustle and The Cut, plan on not publishing any new content on Wednesday.

"We hope you enjoy the journey through time and space to learn about these phenomenal women", the statement adds. Camira Powell, who works for a women's human rights organization, Global Fund For Women, says her way of advocating for gender equality "is doing my job".

"If you can't strike, we're encouraging participation by having an economic impact in some other way". There will also be an International Women's Day march, beginning at Logan Square in the afternoon; and a gathering beforehand for children and parents to make signs at Aviator Park.

She didn't have exact numbers on how many women may be participating in the movement in Philadelphia, which included protests, marches, lobbying legislators, and more subtle participation-through calling out of work.
