Have women had enough? Women’s Day is typically marked with solidarity walks and messages of empowerment and equality. However, on March 8 this year, many people seem to be going beyond celebrating the role of women to asserting their equal position. The US saw a revival of the Women’s March, with #DayWithoutAWoman and many other countries highlighted the gender disparity at home and in the workplace.

A strike and march across the US was promoted using #DayWithoutAWoman and #IStrikeFor

@astroehlein: “The Statue of Liberty has gone dark for #DayWithoutAWoman on #WomensDay”

@KeikoZoll: “On a #DayWithoutAWoman #IStrikeFor the end of limits to women’s access to healthcare written by men w/no medical backgrounds #ShePersisted”

@EgSophie: “I am CLOSED today, 3/8, for #DayWithoutAWoman. #IStrikeFor the women whose work is devalued and under-appreciated. I see you. I love you.”

@Briizzy3: “#Istrikefor equal pay for equal work, planned parenthood, my daughter who will break glass ceilings.”

@DavidYankovich: “It may be midnight in America, but dawn is coming. Today is a #daywithoutawoman, but nevertheless- she persisted.”

@tabithastb: “A #daywithoutawoman is a day without her. #ladyliberty”

@DisabilityPower: “Lights are out at the #StatueOfLiberty. A somber and surreal moment as we head into a #DayWithoutAWoman. @womensmarch #RESIST #WhyIMarch”

@EquitableEd: “Let’s ensure women everywhere in the world have this. Celebrate, change and challenge. #IWD17 #BeBoldForChange @WomenEd #WomenEd”

@janet_rice: “Fabulous crowd at #IWD17 Melbourne rally. A woman’s place is everywhere!”

@BeccaJJohansson: “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of women who have her back. Be the #tribe #BeBoldForChange #InternationalWomensDay #ShePersisted”

@Mark_Weinberger: “People remember what you do far more than what you say. #BeBoldForChange this International @WomensDay. @EY_WFF”

@EADHistory: “Remember when @SenWarren was silenced for “impugning” Jeff Sessions’s character, the guy who lied under oath? #ShePersisted #FireSessions”

@ajkashy: “And so we carry on! Against all odds. With hope. That one day there will be true and meaningful equality. Happy Women’s day! #womensday

@im_rayankhan: “A feminist is anyone who recognises the equality and full humanity of women and men. #prcWF #BeBoldForChange”

@AnnMbiruru: “@womensday bold to point out subtle bias in the work place because its consequences are not subtle”

@Joqqi: “@AnnMbiruru @womensday @gatuheirwe1 @WaturiWaMatu subtle bias can have huge ramifications - that you can’t see doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist”

@EllysePerryFC: “‘No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you.’ – Jinnah #BeBoldForChange #IWD #IWD2017 #WomensDay”
