But I do want to tell you the serious part about it is today is a general strike day without a woman. The idea behind the women's general strike is that if women refuse to do all of their typical work for a day it's gonna force people to notice how important. And under appreciated. That work is so it was organized today by these same groups that did with the women's march on Washington the day after president trams inauguration. And striking isn't the only way to organizers are encouraging people to participate so if you're like us and you're out working you're still going to work today. People are encouraged to avoid shopping. With the exceptions of small women owned businesses into the so you can participate and that way you participate with your wallet eat Wear red and solidarity. Partially and did not conduct message before getting the starting. But you can Wear red all day today and solidarity and that there are several school districts around the country who actually. Had to close because so many of the women and their cities are going to be. Participating in this so it's an Alexandria Virginia also in North Carolina. And also and prince George's county and Maryland all of this school districts have had a closed today. Which of course has created a four for women who were still gonna go to work and now can't.
