Back on March 8, more than 30 female-owned Milwaukee businesses joined forces in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman movement to partake in the inaugural Lady Business. The event—which was organized on less than two weeks of notice—aimed to celebrate female-identifying business owners in Milwaukee, all of whom pledged to donate a portion of their March 8 sales to Milwaukee Women’s Center.

Now that funds have been collected from all the bars, restaurants, retail shops, and studios involved, Lady Business is proud to report the event raised a grand total of $9,145. That’s not all. Lady Business co-organizer Taylor Thomas says the group is planning a Milwaukee Women’s Center donation drive for the month of May. Way to go, Lady Business (and all who supported it). We’re excited to see what year two holds.
