War against women is very real

March 17, 2017

I am one of the tens of thousands of people who proudly joined the March 8 A Day Without Women action. I joined this action to spotlight that there are millions of women in America today who are not receiving equal pay for work. Women who are being sexually harassed and discriminated in the workplace. Women who are still not guaranteed paid family leave or sick days to take care of themselves and family members. The war against women is very real and potentially very deadly. The current administration has escalated this war of attacking women by limiting affordable insurance. I was unable to take the day, and I wore red to display my support to this action.

I did not spend any money that day. There were many of us who wore red. Disrupting business is one method to focus the struggles of women and force our leaders to take action protecting them. Becoming more involved in the electoral process is another. I want a healthy world for my grandchildren. A healthy environment and a healthy economy. This is one woman who will not be silenced. Thank you,
