Women are going on strike! Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why and when.
“Organizers of the Women’s March on Washington have set March 8 as the date for the Women’s General Strike.
The Day Without a Woman strike, calling on women to collectively resist in support of our rights, was announced earlier this month without a date. A Women’s March Instagram post reads in part:
In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer A Day Without A Woman. We ask: do businesses support our communities, or do they drain our communities? Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression? Do they align with a sustainable environment or do they profit off destruction and steal the futures of our children?”
