It’s International Women’s Day. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports there are events taking place throughout the state to mark the occasion.
In Cincinnati, there’s a rally that focuses on random act of kindness.
In Youngstown, a multicultural fashion show will be held to celebrate the diversity of women.
Many women throughout the state are also taking the day off work today as part of a national “Day without Women” movement to show how important women are to workplaces.
But many women are not taking the day off, and there’s a movement pushing shopping at businesses owned by women today or donating to causes that affect women.
