Wednesday, March 8, 2017 is International Women's Day and also A Day Without a Woman, organized by the group behind the Women's March. The strike calls for women to take the day off from paid and unpaid labor; the idea is to demonstrate what a day without women would look like.
This is a cause we support and rally around, but we also realize that not everyone can strike. Since POPSUGAR is a media company run by women, for women, we won't be taking the day off on March 8; we have too much important work to do. Instead, we'll be flooding our sites and social media accounts with International Women's Day content, including a special feature on 12 Things That Wouldn't Exist Without Women, spotlighting female inventors, entrepreneurs, and creators. — Nancy Einhart
