Women's March organizers announce A Day Without a Woman worldwide on International Women's Day .

In commemoration of  International Women's Day, Women's March coordinators have called for A Day Without a Woman world-wide work strike. According to the Women's March website, "On International Women's Day, March 8, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice, and the human rights of all women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity."

According to the Women's March website, A Day Without a Woman will recognize the value of women from all backgrounds to socio-economic systems around the world while experiencing inequality, discrimination and lower wages.

A Day Without a Woman calls for the following according to Women's March.

1. Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor.

2. Avoid shopping for one day (with the exceptions for small, women and minority owned bussiness).

3. Wear Red in solidarity with A Day Without a Woman.
