Los Angeles Times columnist Meghan Daum encourages women to support the upcoming “A Day Without a Woman” movement, if they keep something in mind.

I highly doubt that “anyone, anywhere” can or will join this party. That’s because it’s really going to be A Day Without a Privileged Woman. …

Make no mistake, March 8 will mostly be a day without women who can afford to skip work, shuffle childcare and household duties to someone else, and shop at stores that are likely to open at 10 and close at 5. As for wearing red, what is the dress code, exactly?
