Protesters converge on downtown LA for 'A Day Without a Woman' rally

Gender and Youth Affairs Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki, while speaking during the International Women's Day in Nairobi yesterday, said women in Kenya were facing many challenges in the political arena.

Back then the New York Times reported that: "Many men have been agitating privately to make February 23 International Men's Day, the equivalent of March 8, which is International Women's day".

Protests and marches are expected across the country today as thousands of women commemorate the struggle for women's rights. Many responses focused on his healthcare policies, which many see as anti-woman.

Women have to be careful, though, she said. "I think it really put into perspective how fragile some of the gains of the women's movement have been so far and how much work we still have ahead of us".

Unlike the Women's March, the scale of Wednesday's strike will prove to be hard to measure.

Goodwin said she hasn't forgotten that there are women in other countries who face serious challenges.

Thankfully, the organizers have included ways to participate that don't require missing work: One is to avoid spending money (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).

"We must work harder to include them, the way we ask to be included - as our full selves, without harassment, without discrimination and violence", she said.

In general women are expected to be more agreeable and happy, sociologists say, whether at work providing service with a smile, or when keeping an emotional keel at home and in their personal lives.
