'A Day Without a Woman' brings mixed reactions

The local Women's March Florida: Tallahassee/Panhandle Chapter planned a vigil and strike for Wednesday night at the Capitol.

"I'm here today to support women's equality and honor all those who came before me and who come after me in their quest to achieve equality for all", she said. Those women might have also been surrounded by male workers who, if they were aware of the march, scoffed at its requirements.

ACPS has been in contact with other jurisdictions about the day, Lloyd says, but "ultimately the decision is ours, because it's about how students are affected in our school district".

The "unusually high number" of call-outs may be connected with the "Day Without a Woman" nationwide protest and social media campaign, schools superintendent Alvin Crawley said in a statement Monday.

"Women have birthed this nation, and many, like myself, are passionate about this country", said St. Bernard, who was also active in "A Day Without a Woman" planning.

"It's a decision that we took around safety and the ability to deliver instruction for our students on that day", she said. Women are encouraged to take off from paid or unpaid work, only shop at women or minority owned businesses, and wear red in solidarity. Women are now more likely to have a college degree than men, so the workforce will only become more dependent on them as time passes. "To be impactful, it's important that we take every opportunity to have our voices be heard". "Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools values and supports its female employees", the district said in a statement.

Utah Women Unite say they are a bipartisan group that represents women from all walks of life. "We have been closely monitoring requests for leave on March 8, including communicating with school leaders and our education association".

In Alexandria, the day will be considered a teacher work day and will not need to be made up by students.

According to the Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR), a nonprofit think tank in Washington, D.C., men still earn significantly more than women.
