“A Day Without Women” Rally
Coinciding with International Women’s Day, “A Day Without Women” is a national day of action that calls for pay equity, access to child care and affordable housing, and immigrant rights. On March 8, hundreds came together in Boston’s Downtown Crossing for a rally highlighting women’s power as essential workers, consumers, and members of society.
The event also carried the momentum of the Women’s March on January 21, in that it opposed the Trump Administration’s aggressively misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic and racist policies. Organizers demanded an end to violence against women, and called for the protection of women’s reproductive and labor rights.
Speakers at the event included Sadia Mohamed, a worker at Logan Airport, Annissa Essaibi-George, a Boston City Councilor At-Large, Jian Hua Tang, a leader of the Chinese Progressive Association, among many others.
CLU is both honored and humbled to have joined the many allies, activists, and organizations supporting and participating in the event.
