'A Day Without A Woman' Rallies Held In Boston

According to the organizers' website, A Day Without a Woman supports "equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity".

For women, taking the day off work. Organizers also asked women to wear red to signify love and sacrifice. "The first actions drew straight from the 1970s playbook".

"I'll be here because, really, that unbelievable balance of taking a stand and making sure people are cared for is very important", Cole said.

Organizers of the January Women's march and A Day Without a Woman are working in solidarity with activists behind the International Women's Strike.

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

While we're striking with women around the world, we also know that we are privileged; not every woman can afford to miss a day of work, and many women risk punishment for participating.

Trump not the target of any probe, White House says

Rallying under the slogan "A Day Without a Woman", many heeded the call to stay away from work or school - as others did last month to protest against the United States president's immigration policies.

ACPS has been in contact with other jurisdictions about the day, Lloyd says, but "ultimately the decision is ours, because it's about how students are affected in our school district". "Has the school system planned for this scenario?" wrote Patty Moses Ellis. In addition, this day could be used to teach women about other women's experiences. We strike for them.

So now, as part of a great movement to "empower" women across the nation, an entire school district is forcing thousands of working women to either take an unscheduled day off from work, or, more likely, pay exorbitant fees for childcare with less than 48 hours notice.

The school closures did not sit well with many parents who had to scramble to find child care with classes canceled. As a black woman, I am aware of the compounded challenges women of color face in our country. When I worked at the Arizona Family Policy Council, my boss Cathi Herrod would always say that abortion not only ends a beating heart, but it breaks a woman's heart. "Thank you all very much for coming", said Democratic leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, addressing those who rallied on Capitol Hill.
