Where You Can Support Women-Owned Businesses on A Day Without a Woman

Here's a handy map for the strike on Wednesday, March 8.

Wednesday, March 8, is International Women’s Day, and an event called “A Day Without A Woman” encourages women to take the day off, wear red, and avoid shopping–except at small, women- and minority-owned businesses.

Here’s a map that shows some women-owned businesses in DC area. Know one we should add? Please email Mandy Zou, mzou@washingtonian.com.
