Rally and march, business closures, benefits part of Day Without a Woman, International Women’s Day in Seattle

Thousands marched in January’s Womxn’s March in Seattle. Rallies, protests, and marches have continued as part of the ongoing opposition to the actions and policies of the Trump administration.

District 3 rep Kshama Sawant is calling on her constituents to “fight Trump’s misogyny and bigotry” at a Wednesday night rally in Westlake as part of International Women’s Day:

Join me, Shaun King from the Injustice Boycott movement and the New York Daily News, Nicole Grant of the Martin Luther King Labor Council, Nikkita Oliver from Black Lives Matter and the No Youth Jail movement, Morgan Beach and Ruchika Tulshyan from the Seattle Women’s Commission, Terri Lindeke of National Organization of Women Seattle, Tiffany Hankins from NARAL, and more!

Meanwhile, expect to see a few local businesses including 23rd and Union’s Squirrel Chops closed Wednesday as some take part in the Day Without a Woman movement while others like 12th Ave’s Rachel’s Ginger Beer host benefits to raise funds for causes like Jubilee Women’s Center.
