Fresh off the bigger-than-expected national success of the Women's March on the day after President Trump's inauguration last month, its organizers are planning their next big event, and announced Monday that it's going to be a general strike. A date hasn't yet been chosen for it, but the Women's March social media accounts are now promoting it with the line: "General Strike: A Day Without A Woman." General strikes, in which large numbers of people don't go to work to make a political or economic demand or protest, are usually a tactic of labor-oriented political movements, and are much rarer in the U.S. than they are in Europe. The goal is to not only be seen out in force, but to also cause some economic disruption.
