A Day without a Woman

As with the Women’s March and the Day without Immigrants this is another protest of Donald Trump’s Presidency. It is also International Women’s Day, this year the theme is Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030, as they hope by 2030 that the wage gap with no longer exist. To participate in the strike you can do any or all of these three things, refrain from paid and unpaid work, not shopping in stores or online (except local, small and women-owned businesses), and/or by wearing red, which signifies “revolutionary love and sacrifice.” So far there are a handful of school districts that are closed because you know most teachers are predominately women. Let us hope that this strike can have a big impact like the strikes in the 70s in the US and Iceland. Time can only tell.
