The endeavor doesn't stop with the humble restaurant in California, though. A McDonald's spokesperson told Business Insider that the company plans on flipping its logo all across the internet on Thursday, outfitting its social media channels with W's instead of the ubiquitous arches.
"In celebration of women everywhere, and for the first time in our brand history, we flipped our iconic arches for International Women's Day in honor of the extraordinary accomplishments of women everywhere and especially in our restaurants," McDonald's Chief Diversity Officer Wendy Lewis said in a statement.
The burger conglomerate will also be giving away some Women's Day swag, like special "packaging, crew shirts and hats and bag stuffers" to commemorate the occasion.
After that, the arches will flip back to their normal orientation, although they're likely to convince some people that they're living in a strange, alternative universe where the golden arches are no longer arched.
