Join Rochester NOW in observing A DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN

Description: Join Rochester NOW in observing A DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN on March 8, 2017 in the South Wedge


Called by the organizers of the Women's March, #DayWithoutAWoman is when women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity. We will be joining women nationwide who, if they can, are taking the day off from paid work and caregiving; only shopping in support of small, women-owned businesses; and wearing red in solidarity.

Join us on March 8 at 10 am and 3:30 pm in the South Wedge for one or both of these actions:

10 am. - Purchase a Solidarity cupcake at Premier Pastry, 433 South Ave.

3:30 pm. - Tea and chocolate in honor of Susan B. Buy chocolate at Hedonist Artisan Chocolates, 674 South Ave., and have tea at Leaf Tea Bar, 650 South Ave.

All three are women/gay/minority owned businesses.
