On Wednesday March 8, the world will celebrate the political, economic, and social achievements of women as they have for over 100 years. But, this International Women's Day is going to be a little bit different.

With a pussy-grabbing president in office and a wildly successful Women's March on Washington on the books, ladies everywhere are looking for ways to support their fellow females.



Sadie Quagliotto, of local music blog Hip in Detroit, wants the momentum of the women's march and subsequent protests to continue rolling, so she reached out to her Facebook constituency, asking them to pass along the names of local businesses owned by women. From that she complied a worthy list of places to patronize this Wednesday. And while her list is a great one, we decided to come up with one of our own.
