Several Bay Area businesses are participating in a nationwide protest called "A Day Without A Woman." The day-long protest highlights how paid and unpaid work by women keeps households, communities and economies running and coincides with International Women's Day (March 8).
You can show your support for the movement by wearing the color red and avoided shopping unless patronizing minority or women-owned businesses.
