SHOCKING:Female House Democrats to join ‘Day Without a Woman’ protest!

The “Day Without a Woman” strike will likely reach all the way to Capitol Hill on Wednesday as some female lawmakers are expected to “deliver speeches on the House floor in support of the strike, then walk out shortly after the chamber convenes at noon. They also plan to wear red, as suggested by the strike’s organizers,” The Hill reported, from an interview with Democratic Representative Lois Frankel of Florida.

“I think it’s important women in Congress show our solidarity,” said Frankel, who will join fellow Democratic Reps. Katherine Clark (Mass.), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Brenda Lawrence (Mich.) in walking out. The women discussed the possibility of abstaining from House votes “to make a point on the ‘Day Without a Woman,’ but changed their minds.

According to Frankel, “We considered a lot of different options, but our feeling is that there is so much mischief going on in this Congress that we cannot turn our backs. We think it would actually be sort of the opposite of what we’re trying to accomplish.”

Frankel has already staged a fashion-based protest last week at President Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress when she and other Democratic women wore the color white in honor of the women’s suffrage movement. Hillary Clinton had done the same thing when she wore a white pantsuit to the presidential inauguration.

She claimed that Wednesday’s protest provides “peaceful outlets for their anxiety until we get to another election.”

More than 300 staffers who work at schools in the Alexandria, Va., city school district near Washington, D.C. were able to shut the district down that day by requesting the day off en masse. Schools in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, N.C., will be closed for the same reason.

On Feb. 16th, “A Day Without Immigrants,” caused many Washington-area restaurants to close for the day in solidarity with immigrants. It was reported that some immigrants who did not show up for work that day ended up losing their jobs.
