According to the Washington Post, The organizers behind the Women’s March on Washington are calling for a general strike next month to show the country what a day without women would look like.
A Day Without Women, the General Strike, will happen March 8th.
Details of the strike, what would happen, and if it would work are uncertain, but organizers suggested they would release more information and actions over the next few weeks.
Following the Women’s March on Jan. 21, the group have been sharing actions online for people to take in the first 100 days of the new administration.
The actions released so far have included writing to senators, strategizing how to build off the energy of the Women’s March and planning grass roots protests and other events engaging with Congress next week, which includes Presidents’ Day.
The “Day Without a Woman” strike follows the “Day Without Immigrants” strike Thursday in D.C. and across the country.
