A march took place in central Indiana on March 8, also known as International Women’s Day. The organizers asked women to stay home from work, not to shop, cook or clean and to wear red in support of the march. The march was meant to showcase the importance of women in society and the workforce.

English teacher Megan Woodward did not stay home from work, but she did wear red. Woodward believes the march should be important to everyone. She has expressed gratitude for being able to work in a safe environment with equal pay and no sexual harassment of women.

“If I can take a little bit of my privilege and stand up for somebody that doesn’t have it, then that’s my responsibility,” Woodward said.
