JOIN US IN A TWO-DAY STRIKE TO PROTEST TRUMP, PENCE, AND THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS’ PLANS FOR US
National Women’s Liberation calls all women, girls, trans*, and nonbinary folks to strike Jan. 20 – 21
Trump, Pence, and the Republican Congress have made their anti-woman agenda clear and have promised to cut, undermine, eliminate, or privatize every social compact from public schools to Medicare to Social Security. They expect the family (that is, WOMEN) to fill in the gaps and pick up the pieces. NO WE WON’T.
WE STRIKE FROM:
Paid jobs * Emotional Labor * Childcare * Diapers * Housework * Cooking * Sweeping * Laundry * Dishes * Errands * Groceries * Fake smiles * Flirting * Makeup * Laundry * Shaving * What are you striking from?
WE STRIKE FOR:
• An end to racist and sexual assaults, and all forms of bigotry
• Reproductive freedom, full access, and no coercion
• National Health Care for all
