On 'A Day Without A Woman' many women business owners work

More than 400 teachers in Denver Public Schools were absent. "For others who I don't agree with, I'm going to let them know why I'm striking".

The group declared March 8 to be "A Day Without a Woman", a protest that is meant to demonstrate economic solidarity with women and gender-oppressed people internationally.

Planners of the march are urging women around the world to stay home from work, avoid shopping or wear red on Wednesday - which is also International Women's Day - to "highlight the economic power and significance" of women.

Big issues require big action, but sometimes those actions must take place on a personal level before widespread effects can take place.

The protests are modeled after similar rallies, including last month's "A Day Without Immigrants" protests, which caused some businesses across the nation to close.

In a last-minute decision, Prince George's County Public Schools has cancelled classes as a result of staffers taking the day off Wednesday for the Day Without a Woman protest. School officials say the district only has enough substitute teachers to fill one-third of the vacant slots. "We've never had circumstances like this before".

On Monday, school officials in Alexandria, Va.; North Carolina's Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District and NY announced they are canceling classes in anticipation of staff shortages due to the event. "Thank you. (From a parent who is facing said inconvenience!)" said a parent on the Facebook page of Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools in North Carolina, which announced the closure March 2. "We have been closely monitoring requests for leave on March 8, including communicating with school leaders and our education association".

"We do all of this and get paid less than men, get sexually harassed, get inadequate family leave", spokeswoman Cassady Findlay said to the Associated Press.

Love said she hopes the Day Without a Woman draws attention to the value women hold in society, showing that "women's work makes up the backbone of the country".

It seems the march, unfortunately, was preaching to the choir more than it was reaching those who need saving. The whole point is to make people realize what an inconvenience it is when Women don't show up. "There'd be no preschools without women".

Milwaukee was one of hundreds of cities across the world to participate in the event on International Women's Day.
