International Women’s Day is March 8, and people around the world are celebrating! Lee Callahan and 96.5 JACK FM spent our three hour morning segment playing music from only women rockers!
“A Day Without A Woman” was planned as a demonstration to show the integral part women play both in society and in the workforce. The protest calls for women to take the day off from work, avoid shopping for one day (except for at small, women- and minority-owned businesses) and wear red in solidarity.
Many participated: one school district in North Carolina had to cancel classes Wednesday because so many teachers and staff members were participating. Another in Maryland had to shut down after 1,700 teachers and a third of the transportation staff requested the day off.
