The Network of enlightened Women Will Not Participate In March 8 Strike

Washington, DC – The Women’s March, the group that organized the January 21 protests, has called for a national boycott of “paid and unpaid labor” on March 8, International Women’s Day. Participants are also encouraged to wear red and avoid shopping, except for small businesses owned by women or minorities.

The Network of Enlightened Women, NeW, is not participating in this strike, known as “A Day Without A Woman.”

Karin Agness, Founder and President of NeW, said:

While organized under the banner of a broad ‘Women’s March’ to benefit all women, it is more accurately a progressive women’s effort that excludes millions of women.

The Women’s March movement is less about supporting all women and more about advocating for progressive policy positions on a wide variety of issues, from immigration to the environment. Pro-life women, for example, are not welcome. In January, the organizers of the Women’s March revoked partnership with the New Wave Feminists because the group is pro-life.

Striking from the workplace and society on Wednesday won’t advance women.

If participants in the Women’s March are truly concerned about being behind in the workplace, they could take concrete actions that would immediately be more productive for women. Marchers could mentor junior female colleagues, giving career advice. They could ask to meet with a boss to discuss ways to take on more responsibility and in turn, earn more money. Or they could work an extra 30 minutes.

NeW is the nation’s premier organization for conservative university women. NeW educates young women on conservative ideas, cultivates a community in which to discuss and strengthen these ideas, and emboldens young women to speak out on campus and in their communities. NeW expands intellectual diversity at universities by empowering conservative women to stand up for their beliefs. NeW is educating and training the next generation of conservative women leaders. In addition to college clubs, NeW hosts The Gentlemen Showcase, NeW National Conference and Young Women’s Leadership Retreat. In September, NeW launched #ShesConservative social media campaign.

Agness is available for interviews about NeW and the “A Day Without A Woman” strike. Please email Diana Stancy with press inquiries.
