A Man's Guide to 'A Day Without Women'

The world needs to raise its collective voice against gender bias inequality and violence against women

However, International Women's Day is not just about celebrating the achievements of those who are famous worldwide or known personalities; there are millions of other women who need to be recognised, appreciated and respected by everyone. We will have contributions from Lizzie Marvelly, Dr. Jackie Blue (NZ Human Rights Commission), Louise Nicholas, Prue Kapua (Te Ropu Wahine Māori Toko i te Ora - Māori Women's Welfare League) and Greer Rasmussen (Generation Zero Auckland).

Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8.

Following the massive turnout of the Women's March, its organizers called for women to go on strike on International Women's Day on Wednesday.

He said this year's theme "Be Bold for Change" means having the courage to do what is right, not to accept the way things are but ask how they should be and work together for a better world. Organizers are asking women to wear red to signify love and sacrifice.

In North Carolina, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City school district canceled classes for Wednesday, also calling it a teacher work day. Share the following images and pics of women's day on the social media to create awareness ofWomen'ss day importance. Some, such as Los Angeles Times opinion writer Meghan Duam, say the idea of striking is for privileged protesters.

Because many people can not afford to miss work, there are other ways to stand in solidarity with those participating in the strike, Conrick said.

The goal, say organizers, is to recognize "the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system", though they continue to face lower wages and experience "greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity".

They remain optimistic that this day-long strike will be effective in keeping their movement going.

The West Palm Beach chapter of Women's March will host a beach cleanup to give women who plan to strike something to do on their day off from work. Around the world, women still don't have full gender equality - whether that's regarding pay, education, access to healthcare or safety.
