'A Day Without Women' for many means a day without school

For those who can't take off work, the organizers have suggested people not shop Wednesday and to wear read in solidarity.

After the Women's March's first event, we mentioned a few segments of the female population that we'd like to see included in future March activities.

Earlier outside of LA City Hall, it was a sea of red as women of all ages and even some men took part in the rally.

After millions of women around the world marched to demonstrate solidarity, the organizers of the Women's March on Washington announced plans to continue their activism with a strike.

"These issues occupied a central place in the agenda of 1970s feminists, such as the "wages for housework" campaign".

Companies can participate by closing for the day or letting female workers have the day off. Business are also being asked to examine policies regarding pay equity and paid leave.

And as usual with a kingpin such as Belichick, the eventual and inevitable trade will be on his terms when it happens. Because he's sure doing a good job of bluffing on his Jimmy Garoppolo trade intentions.

Women from across the city came together Wednesday in Downtown Los Angeles to honor International Women's Day. Schools in Alexandria, Va., North Carolina's Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District, and NY released statements saying they would be closed in anticipation of the shortage that "A Day Without a Woman" would bring. If we estimate that at least half of these are women, that's roughly 30 women a day that lose their lives to abortion. "However, the decision to close schools is not an endorsement of the planned demonstration".

Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday and asked followers to join him in "honoring the critical role of women" in the US and around the world.

Sure, they do. But that doesn't help folks living in an area that's already way above the national average cost of living, where many families include two working parents who'll likely have a hard time scheduling an all-day babysitter on the fly.

"I am a woman, I am black, I am an immigrant, and I am unapologetic", another said, drawing loud cheers. If that's not happening, if we strike, there would be no day care.

"I'm here to support my wife, my daughters and my granddaughters".

It makes sense, Women's March organizers say, to show how crucial that work is by not working today.

Though women are underrepresented and account for only 19% in the House and Senate, these lawmakers have decided not to take the day off on Wednesday to ensure their voices are heard!
