International Women's Day: NCAA conference commissioners

March 8 is International Women's Day, and this year the organizers of the January Women's March have declared it as a "Day Without a Woman". Outside of rallies, those participating in "Day Without a Woman" were asked to stay home from work, wear red, and avoid spending money. In fact, if all women were to take off March 8, the Center for American Progress projects it would cost the USA almost $21 billion in gross domestic product.

The goal of the Day Without a Woman strike, according to Women's March organizers, "is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the USA and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face". March 8 is the chosen date for IWD because it marks the women's march in Petrograd, Russia, that sparked the 1917 Russian Revolution.
