What You Should Know About ‘A Day Withou a Woman’
I think the whole world already knows enough about the Women’s March that started out in Washington and was supported (or criticized) all over the world. On January 21st, over 2 million people filled the streets of Washington D.C. in a march that probably entered history.
This time, the organizers are planning another series of rallies and marches in a project known as ‘A Day Without a Woman.’
We’ve gathered the most important things you need to know about this important event here.
What is the International Women’s Strike?
This strike goes well beyond Washington. Women from over 50 countries are gathering to get attention on marginalized women and the issues they are facing. Some of the most significant are: gender violence, labor rights and reproductive freedom.
What is A Day Without a Woman?
The organizers of the January March in Washington came up with the idea to put issues such as women’s value from an economic point of view. From gender discrimination at the workplace to low wages or sexual harassment, let’s just say these women have a lot to say.
What is the difference between the Women’s Strike, A Day Without a Woman and International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is an event that celebrates women from all over the world every year. It’s not a sign of protest, but one of compassion and admiration towards women.
Women’s Strike and A Day Without Women are different projects that focus on different ideas, but anyone can participate in both of them.
I do know that it was awfully quiet and peaceful that day!!!
