“On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity,” a call to action by the organizers of the Women’s March on Washington reads. That statement is followed by a simple question: “Are you in?”
It’s a call to action for a Day Without a Woman protest. The protest encourages women to take the day off, wear red in solidarity, and avoid shopping except at small, women- and minority-owned businesses.
None of which is hard to do in New York City. VinePair pulled together data from Bond Street, ChowHound, and Roundtable to map out the City’s women-owned bars and restaurants. If you’re in the city, take some time to dine and drink in support of women.
“Let’s raise our voices together again, to say that women’s rights are human rights, regardless of a woman’s race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability.”
