Women around the world are preparing for a series of protests called ‘A Day Without Women’, a campaign highlighting discrimination and exploitation against them.
Organizers at the Miami Women’s Fund say the vital role women play in both the domestic and global economy is often overlooked.
They hope encouraging women to take the day off will show how essential they are to the workforce.
Wednesday commemorates International Women’s Day and several marches are planned across the Twin Cities. It also happens to be a Day Without A Woman, an event organized by the same people who put on the Women’s March following the January 21 inauguration, Mary McGuire reports
