Patricia Grace started this petition to United States Congress and

On March 8, we celebrated International Women's Day, a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.

Unfortunately, Daylight Saving Time undermines this celebration by reducing the length of International Women's Day. In fact, International Women's Day was the shortest day of 2020 in the United States. This will happen again every 7 years. Before we can celebrate our progress toward equality, we must make progress toward equality of our celebration.

Daylight Saving Time is not a natural law, but an ordinary law that can be changed by congress. In fact, the current schedule has only been in force since 2005. On the other hand, International Women's Day has occurred for well over a century, with the first gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. 

Join us in asking congress to amend the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to move Daylight Saving Time by just one week, avoiding the unjust and unnecessary collision with International Women's Day.

Together we can make a difference!
