US networks, Netflix take part in A Day Without Women8 March 2017
NBC, Netflix and MTV are marking International Women’s Day by allowing female members of staff to take the day off.
The initiative, called A Day Without Women, is being supported across Hollywood by talent agencies including Paradigm and United Talent Agency as well as Open Road Films.
MTV is marking the day with a special logo, flipping the M into a red W for women across its broadcast and social media channels.
Created by the organisers of January Women’s March, A Day Without a Woman aims for people to come together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.
