In support of International Women's Day on March 8th and the A Day Without A Woman initiative, we are turning the gallery red. We have selected artwork featuring the color red from our 500 Project artists to show our unity and to promote the Unity Principles that were created for the Women's March:
- Ending Violence
- Reproductive Rights
- LGBTQIA Rights
- Worker's Rights
- Civil Rights
- Disability Rights
- Immigrant Rights
- Environmental Justice
The essence of A Day Without A Woman is captured on the Woman's March website:
"In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women's March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity. We recognize that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting. We believe in gender justice."
Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:
- Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
- Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
- Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman
