March 8, 2017 3:25 pm

Netflix released an International Women’s Day “trailer” that points out how vital women characters are to some of their most iconic shows, including “Stranger Things,” “Orange is the New Black,” and “Mad Men.”

“Our stories don’t work without women,” the trailer reads. “And the world wouldn’t, either.”

The trailer coincides not only with International Women’s Day, which was first celebrated in 1909, but also with “Day Without A Woman,” a nationwide demonstration organized by the Women’s March, as well as other women’s rights groups, the New York Times reports. The strike has shut down a municipal court in Rhode Island, as well as several schools in at least four states, Fox News reports. The music network MTV is participating as well by flipping the M in its logo into a W, as well as freezing its social media accounts.
