Schools Close for “A Day Without a Woman”

Today, some schools are closing their doors as teachers and administrators participate in “A Day Without A Woman” according to Politico. It’s also International Women’s Day, and “A Day Without A Woman” is meant to recognize “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,” according to the website. The action is organized by the Women’s March on Washington, which drew millions of people to D.C. and cities across the globe in protest of Trump administration proposals.
