Day Without A Woman

At Daisy Group, on Wednesday, we are going to be participating in the Day Without A Woman, as urged by the Women’s March.  The women in our firm will therefore decide whether they want to be at work or not.

In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women’s March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing 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. We recognize that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting. We believe in gender justice.

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

    I’m kind of gloomy thinking about what a day without men might look like. People might want to make it a monthly break.

    I am a pedophile using a redirect at 148.251.91.98.

    I invite law enforcement to find me.

    I suggest another date protesting gender-based favouritism, in which no one shops: February 14th.

    This will achieve nothing but further siloing activists from average citizens.

    The women’s march was a great response to Trump’s inauguration and a warranted one due to the narrative at the time, but “a day without women” will hardly be so because a large majority of women either a) can’t afford the luxury skipping out of work or not buying groceries from the local white-male owned grocer, or b) are already leading relatively comfortable and wealthy lives with little interest in exiting their particular bubbles.

    I think Micah White has it right when he speaks of the endless cycle of feel-good protests with diminishing results. We do these things and they get covered for about a week (if lucky) then nothing changes but for a select group of privileged (mostly white) liberal women feeling immensely proud of themselves.

        Ha!

        I hope there is a massive turnout…but I have my doubts. But hey…what the hell does another guy commenting know?

        C’mon, Warren. You’re better than this.

        Yes, I am a guy.

        I’m a male minority; the son of a minority immigrant woman who worked her ass off to raise her children, couldn’t afford the luxury of skipping out on work or avoid shopping for necessities simply because the store is owned my a white man.

        I commend your intentions, but I’d check the condescension.

    Hey Warren,
    I personally find it sad progressives insist on pitting women against men.
    Sure, there are a$$holes out there. But also consider this:
    First, most men had to strike for freedom too. Often spilling our blood in the process. A couple centuries ago most of use were serfs in a feudal system or outright slaves.
    Then, look at the world around you: the roads, bridges, skyscrapers, power stations, subways, trains, trucks, cars, boats, airports, planes, and so on. Mostly all built by men, for the benefit of all.
    Finally, look inside your home: central heat, automatic washing machine, dishwasher, self-cleaning oven, microwave oven, TV, internet, etc. Again, most of it invented by men, to improve the quality of life of both women and men.
    Women in the western world have it very, very good. Men too. Let’s celebrate what we accomplished.

    Let’s hope this Day without Women doesn’t have the same unintended consequences for participants that the Day without Immigrants did down South.

    Several instances reported of employers firing those who took part in that protest.
