Women across the country are set to strike the weekend of January 20, in protest of Donald Trump’s inauguration. The Women Strike will go down that Friday — the actual day of the inauguration — as well as the Saturday, which also happens to be the day of the Women’s March on Washington.
Organizers of the strike are reportedly urging women to abstain from all labor that weekend to demand access to birth control and abortion, a $15 minimum wage, paid family leave and universal child care, according to Gothamist. And, given that the president-elect’s campaign was marked by bigotry and misogyny, the strike’s organizers are also calling for an end of harassment and degradation.
There is also of course a huge protest led by women planned for January 21st as well.
I think it is safe to say that there has never been an incoming president so universally reviled by women in this country.
You know except for the anti-women women like Sarah Palin of course.
Let's face it, the guy's a pig.
