Imagining an Economy Without Women?
Written by 107PowerFM.Net on March 8, 2017
On Wednesday, the organizers of the Women’s March encouraged participation in the “A Day Without a Woman” strike.
In 1908, 15,000 female garment workers marched through New York demanding shorter hours, better pay, and voting rights. More than 100 years later—on what has been dubbed International Women’s Day in remembrance of such protests—women across the U.S. are striking in a walkout called “A Day Without a Woman.” Wednesday’s protest, organized by Women’s March on Washington, is meant to show what the American economy would look like without female labor or consumers, and to push for gender equality in the workplace.
