Chapel Hill, Alexandria Schools Forced To Close Due to 'Day Without a Woman' Absences
The superintendents for the public schools in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and Alexandria, Virginia, have said that they will be forced to close schools tomorrow because so many of their teachers and staffers have asked for the day off to take part in the "A Day Without a Woman" women's strike.
The strike was organized by the same people who were behind the Women's March, which drew millions of people to turn out on the day after President Trump's inauguration. The organizers of A Day Without a Woman" are calling on women to not work for the day (including unpaid labor), not shop -- except for at small minority- and women-owned businesses, and to wear red. No other school districts have reported being forced to close. (Pulse Networks)
