(The Federalist) The Day Without A Woman strike leaders want women to take the day off from work (ridiculously resulting in the shuttering of several schools today), avoid shopping, and wear red. They also posited three questions to guide strikers’ thoughts:
- Do businesses support our communities, or do they drain our communities?
- Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression?
- Do they align with a sustainable environment or do they profit off destruction and steal the future of our children?
But given the Premier Partners of the Women’s March include, among others, abortion boosters Planned Parenthood and NARAL, the strikers would be better served using their day off for some serious introspection. A good place for them to start: Remembering the women the world is without today given the policies and priorities the organizers of A Day Without A Woman promotes. These include the following.
