"Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women." ~ Maya Angelou
Today is International Women's Day and also, as an extension of the Women's March on Washington earlier this year in January, it's A Day Without A Woman. A day to honor and recognize the countless contributions that women of all backgrounds and creeds add to our overall socio-economic system. In the face of lower wages. In the face of job insecurity. In the face of vulnerability to discrimination and sexual harassment.
While I recognize not everyone can take the day off of work today (I know I can't), there are other ways you can show your support and solidarity starting first with avoiding shopping (unless it supports women and minority-run businesses) and wearing RED today. Yours truly will be wearing the brightest red dress I own.
