Publishers, Platforms Participate In International Women's Day

Many popular publishers and platforms will be supporting their female employees on March 8, International Women’s Day.

The organizer's website suggests three ways to mark the occasion and support women: women taking the day off from work; avoiding shopping anywhere but small, women- and minority-owned businesses; and wearing red.

Bustle, a site focused on news for millennial women, and its sister site, Romper, won't publish any content on Wednesday. Their social media accounts will go dark. The staff of Jezebel, part of Gizmodo Media Group, will stand with other women striking across the country. Jezebel’s two current male reporters, along with male staffers from GMG’s other sites, will create content for Jezebel on Wednesday, and the site’s female writers will then report on the strike on Thursday.

New York magazine’s The Cut will be running old articles on Wednesday but has also published an article that lays out some of the potential outcomes of striking when done properly.
