Join us in a TWO-DAY STRIKE
to protest Trump, Pence and the Republican Congress' plans for us.
Strike in D.C . / in your home town / at school / for all or part of the time / from all or some of your work
Men should strike too but they should take on additional work at home so women can fully participate in the demonstrations.
Trans* and nonbinary folk welcome and encouraged to participate

We Strike From Paid jobs / Emotional Labor / Childcare / Diapers / Housework /
Cooking / Sweeping / Laundry / Dishes / Errands / Groceries / Fake smiles /
Flirting / Makeup / Laundry / Shaving /


We Strike For
An end to racist and sexual assaults, and all forms of bigotry
Reproductive freedom, full access, and no coercion
National Health Care for all
A $15 minimum wage for all workers, no exceptions
Protection and expansion of Social Security
Childcare, free like the public schools, and paid family leave
R-E-S-P-E-C-T

The Democrats didn't pursue these plans when they could have, and now the incoming administration is promising to cut, undermine, privatize, or eliminate every social compact from public schools to Medicare to Social Security. They expect the family (that is, WOMEN) to fill in the gaps and pick up the pieces. NO WE WON'T. This strike is a warning. Our work can no longer be taken for granted.
