The Women’s March is working. There is a movement building and it’s not only women. The march may have been the think that kicked things off, but more and more people are organizing in their local communities to keep involved in politics.
The latest national response is a General Strike by women. A Day Without A Woman recognizes ‘the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system–while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.’
Here’s what you can do:
• Wear red
• Only spend money at businesses owned by women or minorities
• Strike! Take the day off from paid or unpaid work
Two school districts in Virginia and North Carolina have already closed the schools for the day, since so many teachers will be out.
Oh, by the way, this also happens to be International Women’s Day, as well.
