organizers hope today's ‘A Day Without a Woman’ movement will help people realize the contributions women make to society

CHARLOTTE, NC– Timed to coincide with the U.N.-designated International Women’s Day, organizers hope today’s ‘A Day Without a Woman’ movement will help people realize the contributions women make to society.  They are asking women to take the day off from paid and unpaid work, not spend any money, and wear ‘red’; the color of solidarity.  In North Carolina, some school districts including Chapel Hill-Carborro canceled classes…but will there be a lasting effect?

WCCB Political Contributor Mary C. Curtis weighs in.
