The Day Without Women strike is the followup to the Women's March in January, and it should be a pretty amazing day for all those participating. The spirit of activism that's swept the nation in the wake of Donald Trump's presidency has been so inspiring, but it's important that everyone be represented in this movement. Every intersectional feminist should know these seven things about the Women's Strike, because the point of the movement is lost if it isn't as inclusive as possible.
Intersectionality is a critical piece of the Women's Strike because it validates cultures and identities that are too often marginalized in society. If people don't acknowledge and accept intersectional feminism and all its tenets, they're not much better than the people who are actively trying to discriminate against marginalized people. Now is the best time to adopt a radically progressive mentality because you're likely to find people who are eager and willing to work with you. Take advantage of this moment to educate yourself and make sure you're being the type of ally and activist you want to be, because if not you, then who? Most importantly, keep these seven things in mind as you prepare for the Women's Strike.
