After a massive demonstration last month against the new U.S. President Donald Trump, the Women’s March on Washington (WMW) has decided to organize another campaign to highlight women’s plight under the Trump Administration.

The new campaign – called A Day Without a Woman – will observe a total strike on March 8. “In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer ‘A Day Without A Woman’,” screams the campaign statement.

The Women’s March also has launched “10 Actions for the first 100 Days” drive that suggests supporters to take 10 different actions in the next 100 days to express their opposition to the Trump Administration.

The actions include writing a postcard to the Senators about the important issues such as ending gender-based violence, reproductive rights and women’s health, LGBTQIA rights, worker’s rights, civil rights, immigrant rights, religious freedom, environmental justice, and so on.

Millions of women in America are raising their voice against Trump’s anti-woman stance including his vulgar language against women.

“A Day Without a Woman” campaign is supposed to urge women to stay away from their work – wherever possible – as a mark of protest against Trump.

Meanwhile, a new protest group has given a call for a nationwide strike on Friday, February 17.

Called Strike4Democracy, its campaign aims to coordinate over 100 strike actions across the United States, and beyond, to plan for a series of mass strikes to stand up for America’s democratic principles.

It says the nation is suffering with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) raids, travel bans, Trump’s mobilization on the border wall, as well as attacks on the rights of workers, women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and the environment.

So, according to Strike4Democracy, people across the country have begun to realize that they must diversify tactics, as protests and marches are only the first step.
