'A Day Without a Woman’” How You Can Show Solidarity

On Wednesday, March 8, International Women's Day, women across the world are taking action to call attention to the contributions we make every day in our workplaces, homes and communities.

This year, the organizers of the Women’s March on Washington have called for a day of action called, “A Day Without a Woman.”

We encourage OPEIU activists to show solidarity with working women around the world.

  1. Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small and women- and minority-owned businesses).
  2. Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman.
  3. Men who are allies of this movement and want to show solidarity can lean into caregiving and lend their support for equal pay and adequate paid family leave for women.
  4. Show your support on social media.
