Rutgers – Day Without a Woman: Walk-out to Teach-in

March 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On March 8th International Women’s Day, the WomensMarch in partnership with Strike4democracy and International Women’s Strike have called us into action, to promote equity, justice and the human rights of women, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.

Lets join this international movement by staging a walk-out and teach-ins at Voorhees Mall. Lets mobilize and organize to continue showing our united dissent from the Trump administration that is aiming to divide us and oppress us.

1. Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman
2. Print out this poster and place it on your office door/window:
