On #ADayWithoutaWoman Will You Be Missed?

By  |  0 Comments

While riding in my car, I listened to a popular male radio announcer state, “Employers need to fire all women who don’t show up for work. After a couple of them get fired, they’ll get the message.”

His sentiment was that women are expendable and need to be taught a lesson if they dissent about their opportunities. Think about it. If men decided to strike about their treatment in the workplace, hardly any women would discourage it much less denounce it. Men are seen as indispensable to the workforce, but women are less so, except in certain careers such as teaching and nursing. The question then becomes, will women be missed by abandoning their roles at work or home? Will you be missed?


March 8, 2017, will commence an international women’s strike called “A Day Without a Woman.” While some women are committed to the movement’s ideals (equal pay, anti-discrimination, sexual harassment), they feel the sacrifice could be too detrimental to risk.

#adaywithoutwomen I value my job & others depend on me there (including lots of women). Not going to take the day off to make a statement.

According to the Women’s March website, anyone can join in one or all of the following ways:
1. Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
2. Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
3. Wear red in solidarity with A Day Without a Woman
