Washington • The organizers behind the Women's March on Washington are calling for a general strike next month to show the country what a day without women would look like.
The strike is planned for March 8.
"In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer a Day Without A Woman," a statement from the organizers read. "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 oppressions."
The terms of the strike and how it would work are unclear, but organizers said they would be sharing more information and actions over the coming weeks.
