This is an internal statement for planning purposes ONLY: 

The following statement from Chris Carson relates to the March 8th "A Day Without A Woman" on International Women's Day:   

 

"The League of Women Voters values the vital contributions women play every day in the workforce. We respect the intention of "A Day Without A Woman" on International Woman's Day. In solidarity with the event, we encourage our members to wear red on March 8 and to support women-owned businesses.  

While we respect that some women can take the day off from their jobs in protest, we at the League can't lose a single day working to protect voting rights and so the League will not participate in the strike.  

March is Women's History Month and the League will be highlighting and celebrating important stories of women throughout the month."
