Today’s is International Women’s Day.
There is also a groundswell happening, riding the wave of the Women’s March. Striking is part of the women’s work that can be and get done today.

You can be a part of a strike, under your own terms. That is your choice. You don’t have to do the steps as suggested; in my opinion, raising your fist is as much an act of defiance as marching.
It’s all in your intention.
