Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 8, 2017, is an important day; not only is it International Women’s Day, but there is a general strike for a day without women, something that is much needed in the current political climate. It’s a day for us to show the world how much they need women, and how much we contribute to society as a whole. Wondering how you can show your support? Here are a few ideas:
- Refrain from engaging in work or shopping unless it is with small, female owned businesses.
- Wear red!
- Donate to organizations that focus on services for women, including Planned Parenthood, ACLU, NARAL Pro-choice America, and Emily’s List, among others.
- Let the important women in your life know that you support them!
If you feel the need to show your support publicly, feel free to download this image that I lettered and designed and share it via your social media channels. You can tag me if you’d like, with my handle @joellecharming.
