A Day Without a Woman: Organize · Resist · Protect | Deborah Lippmann in Miss Independent and Respect + Comparisons
Today, on International Women's Day, I participate in the A Day Without a Woman event. I mentioned it in my last post:
There is more information about this on the Women's March site and an article discussing this strike on Vox. In a week where we've seen our new president make grave and despicable things up out of whole cloth once again, please consider showing him an irrefutable truth: "the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity" and "that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting" (Women's March). It's a sad statement that I could post a link connecting Donald Trump to each one of those acts. The truth matters. Goodness matters. Women matter.I hope you'll participate in whatever way you can. In the U.S. we are now living with an administration that thinks nothing of trampling on the civil liberties of its citizens. If you think your voice is small and your power is nonexistent, please look at this infographic from Time, "Here's What a Day Without Women Would Really Look Like." Participate. Make yourself heard.
Let's talk about polish after the jump.
