The Women’s March on Washington has called for a “General Strike: A Day Without A Woman” w/ the date for the general strike for March 8th on International Women’s Day (announced on V-day, thanks to those who messaged us!
***WE WILL ALSO STRIKE ON MAY 1 (our placeholder date) for our SECOND STRIKE for Un Dia Sin Inmigrantes to stand with immigrants in the USA.***
1ST STRIKE! MARCH 8 https://www.womensmarch.com/womensday
On March 8th, International Women’s Day, women and our allies will act together creatively to withdraw from the corporations that harm us and find ways to support the businesses, organizations and communities that sustain us. As we prepare for 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?
We unite with the International Women’s Strike on March 8th and we observe Strike4Democracy’s Day of Planning on Friday, February 17th as we gather our friends, families, neighbors and coworkers and make plans to stand up for economic justice, affirmatively building community, and supporting local, women- and minority-owned businesses. In the weeks leading up to March 8th, we will continue to discuss the variety of ways that all people can join the fight for economic justice.
Recognizing the multiple, intersecting identities of women, we support and admire these efforts:
