On Monday morning, the Women’s March announced on Instagram that there will be a “general strike.”
The Instagram post is simple and gives little to no information, reading: “General strike: A day without a woman. Date To Be Announced.” The caption reads: “The will of the people will stand.”[…]
As of Monday afternoon, the initial Instagram post had already received more than 17,000 likes. The Women’s March also posted the news on Twitter and Facebook, where many users commented in support of a strike.
Many celebrities retweeted the news in support. “Hit ‘em in the wallet,” writer and comedian Corinne Fisher wrote on Twitter. Feminist writer Jessica Valenti added: “I am so here for this.”
I hope this strike includes daily errands, as well. Don’t go to the bank, grocery store, out to dinner, put gas in the car, online shop, etc.. Women just stay home. It could have quite an impact.
