It's been almost a month and a half since the international women's march drew thousands to downtown L.A. and other sites across the country and today, on international women's day, there's another action.
But this time, it's a strike
"A day without a woman" is happening right now, and a number of events are scheduled throughout the day:
L.A. Councilmember Nury Martinez will lead a demonstration by female city employees at today's council meeting.
There's a noon rally scheduled at the LA Civic Center.
And another at three this afternoon at the Federal Building.
The stated goal of the Day Without Women is to rally all gender-oppressed people in a demonstration of economic solidarity. But the execution of the idea has been drawing some criticism.
Maureen Shaw wrote about it in Quartz. She spoke to A Martinez about the strike's unintentional exclusion and how it could be executed better.
