Wednesday, March 8th, we'll be observing International Women's Day here at Smile Politely. You won't see any articles or SPlogs from us, but you'll see this published on Tuesday evening.

A Day Without A Woman is a day we're wanting to recognize as a magazine because of the women and other gender-oppressed people that help make the magazine possible each and every day.

Editors, writers, photographers, supporters, readers, friends, and more — it wouldn't be possible without women of Champaign-Urbana and beyond.

If you're interested in learning more about International Women's Day, and the Women's March around the country — check out the link posted above.

On International Women's Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.
