Public schools in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Alexandria, Virginia will close this Wednesday, after hundreds of teachers requested the day off to participate in this week's Women's Strike.
Earl said the Pledge For Parity campaign is a good way to connect with different people who support this common cause.
Back then the New York Times reported that: "Many men have been agitating privately to make February 23 International Men's Day, the equivalent of March 8, which is International Women's day".
Women are on strike across the nation today in a mass demonstration aimed at illustrating their often overlooked contributions to society and the economy.
"It is important to participate in something like this because I feel like more than ever, women's rights as well as plenty of other rights, are on the forefront and under the limelight", Conrick said.
Dozens of women clad in red and holding signs gathered at 59th Street and 5th Avenue for a protest organized by the same group behind the Women's March on Washington.

Iran urges Armenia, Azerbaijan to end hostilities
As a result of the countermeasures taken by the Defense Army, the Azerbaijani side suffered losses and has wounded. Armenian media quoted Nagorno-Karabakh officials saying that Azerbaijan had deployed tanks in the skirmish.
Netflix also stated that if its staff wants to observe International Women's Day, they are free to do so.
Like many women, Stein says discussions about International Women's Day have revolved around the question of "who will be able to strike and how only women with certain privileges will be able to partake".
Women were encouraged to wear red "to keep it in people's heads as a reminder to take care of yourself and not to spend any money", Bryant said.
More than 50 countries around the world have scheduled events.
"This day means supports to all women, here in Rochester, around the world, supporting their paid and unpaid work, and hopefully demonstrating solidarity", she said. "Without this sort of collective power, a large number of working-class women may abstain from the strike because the risks of sticking out will seem to outweigh the benefits".
