5 Easy Things To Do If You Can’t March For International Women’s Day

Ring the Beyoncé alarm, because today is International Women’s Day.

And it just so happens that it’s also the day our American sisters will go on a historic strike as part of “A Day Without A Woman.” Girl power is needed now more than ever, but attending the strike is a privilege because for many women, missing a day of work isn’t in the cards.

The 6ix will celebrate International Women’s Day in a march on March 11, starting at the University of Toronto’s Medical Sciences Building and ending with a fair inside Ryerson University’s Student Learning Centre.
