And so, on the weekend of Donald Trump’s inauguration American women are going on strike. On Jan. 20 and 21, women will abstain from not just work, but domestic labor, in order to demonstrate the political power of women to shut down not just the workplace, but the home as well…

The strike doesn’t just support walking out from your job and preventing economic exploitation, but also disrupting unpaid emotional and domestic labor that women are expected to perform as default societal function…

There have been several recent successful women’s strikes in Europe. In Poland, thousands of women took to the streets for the Black Monday protest for abortion rights, and eventually helping to stop a potential abortion ban in its tracks. In 1975, a full 90% of the women in Iceland held a strike, and now the country’s women strike on Oct. 24 to protest the national pay gap…










I pledge to not spend any money on January 20th and 21st, not at Walgreens, Walmart, Taco Cabana, or online. (If I had a partner, I would make him clean all day long, including scrubbing the toilet twice.) #WomenStrike

  1. OMG – what to pin, what to pin?

    Shades of Lysistrata – if women would refuse to engage in one other thing that men expect from us, I’m sure more of them would be marching along-side us. 🙂 Too bad we didn’t do that BEFORE the election – and threaten to resume only if he did *not* get elected!!!
