Savannah bakery to be closed Wednesday in support of ‘Day Without a Woman’

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - One Savannah business is closing its doors for the day on Wednesday to support the national movement, "A Day Without a Woman".

Back in the Day Bakery posted that it will close to recognize the value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system, all while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequalities. This movement coming after the Women's March drew hundreds of thousands of demonstrators the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration.

"We have our own opinions and we never pass those as a business on anyone, but we just think it's important to stand up for what we believe in, and we believe in equality for all women and all people," said co-owner of Back in the Day Bakery, Cheryl Day.

Back in the Day will be back in business Thursday.

Also, scheduled to happen Wednesday, a demonstration in Johnson Square at noon. At 5 p.m., a rally featuring speeches from representatives of The Rape Crisis Center, Planned Parenthood, Moms Demand Action and more.
