The "Day Without a Woman" campaign is led by the same group who organized the D.C. women's march, which drew massive crowds to the National Mall the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration. Megan Collier, a Women's March organizer from MI, told the Detroit Free Press that there are other meaningful ways to engage in protest without missing work.
The main event in San Francisco, the rally in front of City Hall, was aimed at urging women to take actions such as exclusively shopping at businesses owned by women and minorities, and observing a 15-minute moment of silence at noon in solidarity with women across California.
Earl said the Pledge For Parity campaign is a good way to connect with different people who support this common cause.
Some local employers gave their female employees the day off. Lori Hulvey, 38, who runs a case management agency for adults with autism, Graceful Progress, said she made a decision to take the day off and give her two female employees the day off if they chose.
Standing in solidarity with Kane is Don Mahaney, the owner of Scratch Food & Beverage in the Pittsburgh's Troy Hill neighborhood.
At the same time, American women earn 80 cents for every dollar a man makes.
In addition to bringing in extra staff, Scratch Food & Beverage will also be holding a fundraiser Wednesday to raise money for Planned Parenthood. The first women's day took place in February of 1909 as 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City in a demonstration aimed at securing higher pay, better working conditions and the right to vote, USA Today reported.

"While the most impactful way would be to take the day off, we realize that many women in our most vulnerable communities or whose jobs provide essential services, including reproductive health services, will not have the ability to join the strike", Fendlay said.
The Texas Tech Women's Studies Program and the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance have collaborated to celebrate International Women's Day on campus with the Pledge For Parity campaign as well as a screening of the film "Suffragette" at 6 p.m. today in room 001 of the English/Philosophy building.
Women across the country participated in the nation-wide walkout, which is meant to "highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the U.S. and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face", according to organizers.
Thousands of women across the United States are getting ready to participate in the nationwide women's strike on Wednesday.
