Intersections: A Day Without Women

March 07, 2017 by Bill Ivey

Because we are on spring break this International Women’s Day, the question of whether and how we might be participating in the national “day without women” never really came up. I’ve heard of public school districts where sufficient numbers of women have requested the day off that they have simply cancelled classes for the day, and here at my wife’s school (a girls school which is still in session), some of the kids have expressed their desire to participate.

Suppose our own school were in session and had made plans to participate. What might a day without women have looked like?
