Taking an unpaid day off can be tough; there are still ways to be involved in the strike and show your support without taking a pay cut.
1. Wear Red
As a sign of solidarity, wear red today to let everyone know you support women.
2. Don't Shop
Women make up the majority of consumers so take the day off shopping except for female owned (ethical) businesses!
3. Call Your Representatives
Call the US Capitol switchboard 202-224-3121 and let your voice be heard about the ACA, women's reproductive rights, etc.
4. Make A Donation
Make a donation to an organization championing women's rights like the ACLU or Planned Parenthood.
5. Show Your Support On Social Media
Share positive messages of support today, make the ladies in your life feel appreciated, and show respect toward everyone.
Happy International Women's Day! Love to you all!
