Is There A National Women's Strike In Washington DC? It's A Major Movement
The Women's March Jan. 21 attracted millions worldwide, and they ultimately showed President Trump and his administration that they will not stop fighting for justice for all people, no matter what. In following up on that promise, march organizers and other activists are promoting and planning for women's strikes and other forms of resistance to underscore the integral nature of the work women do as well as to advocate for fairer workplace treatment for everyone — from trans women to sex workers to mothers and Indigenous women. And after the nation's capital served as the epicenter for the marches that launched the movement, there will certainly be national women's strike events in Washington D.C. — as well as in more than 30 countries across the globe.
