Amy Schumer Calls On Women To Stop Working To Send Message To Trump
Amy Schumer on Tuesday called on all women to stop working to send a message to President Donald Trump.
The 35-year-old actress shared a post with her 5.9 million followers on Instagram encouraging women to take part in “A Day Without A Woman” campaign on Wednesday, calling it an opportunity to show Trump that if he “marginalizes half the population” with his upcoming agenda, “everybody loses.” (RELATED: TRAINWRECK — Tampa Crowd Eats Amy Schumer Alive For Going After Trump [VIDEO])
“Let’s rock #adaywithoutawoman tomorrow,” Schumer wrote in the caption next to the post that included a flier about the nationwide protest. “I realize this is going to be impossible for most people. But if you can just wear red. here’s why: the day is to demonstrate the economic power and importance of women by removing them from the workplace and economy for the day.” (RELATED: Amy Schumer Says It’s Sexist When Men Tell Her Not To Do ‘Dirty Stuff’)
“So much of what Trump is doing will impact women disproportionately,” she added. “He’s going to do fuck all for equal pay, health care, parental leave, etc. (We also beat the brung of his policies on less obvious things like education because women are 3x more likely to have jobs in the fields of caregiving and education,etc.)”
“The point of the strike is to remind him that if marginalizes more than half of the population with his policies, everybody loses.”
Promoters of the event call on all women to “not engage in paid and unpaid work, avoid spending money and wear red in solidarity.”
