As part of the call for the Day Without A Woman strike on International Women's Day 2017, organizers asked for people to avoid shopping except at small, women- and minority-owned businesses. To help you with that, we compiled this list of restaurants, cafes, and bars in Seattle that are owned by women (at least partially—some of these are co-owned by men), and we've updated this list for 2018 so you can continue in that mission. For other ways to celebrate International Women's Day 2018, check out this list of events.
