The same organization that brought over 3 million people together to protest against Donald Trump last month are back at it again! The Women’s March has announced that they will hold ‘A Day Without A Woman’ strike in order to kickstart a series of ten actions that they plan to take during the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency. These actions include “organizing and contacting elected representatives.”

“At a time when our foundational principles of freedom and equality are under threat, The Women’s March is committed to engaging in actions that affirmatively build community, strengthen relationships and support local, women- and minority-owned businesses,” The Women’s March said in a statement. They appeared to be praising the boycotts of various companies such as Uber and Nordstrom that supported Trump and other individuals that “brought the corporate practices of Uber and Nordstrom to light.”

This organization is calling people to refrain from going to work on the ordained day in order to demand political and economic action. If you are interested in participating in the strike, then. E on the lookout for updates from the Women’s March twitter page!
