Yes, all of March is Women’s History Month, but this past Wednesday was International Women’s Day, as well as "A Day Without a Woman." The event was organized as a “one-day demonstration of economic solidarity,” in which women were encouraged to strike from work, not spend money (with exceptions), and wear red. In New York City, some women who participated in A Day Without a Woman made their voices heard at rallies and marches, including one near Central Park in which organizers of “A Day Without A Woman” were arrested and later released.
At Washington Square Park, the International Women's Strike Rally and March featured speakers, performances, and readings before moving west toward Stonewall Inn, where the crowd sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah," and then continued downtown toward Zuccotti Park.
Ahead, see photos of some of the most moving photos of the afternoon and evening.
