U.S. women encouraged to show their economic impact on American society

(CP) - Women in the U.S. are being encouraged today to not spend money and take the day off from work to show their economic strength and impact on American society.

The organizers of January's Women's March have organized Wednesday's "A Day Without a Woman."

Millions turned out in January for marches in the U.S., and in Canada, held the day after U.S. President Donald Trump's inauguration.
