Liberal women are all in when they are passing out pink hats on the weekend, but will they stand up and walk out of their own jobs in solidarity with their sisters on a work day? Not so much.
The Hill makes this point on “A Day Without Women.” And it’s a good one:
While striking may be effective for some women, it is likely the strike will render a similar outcome to the recent “A Day Without Immigrants” strike in February. A number of participants lost their jobs due to the strike.
As one Colorado employer told CNN: “If you’re going to stand up for what you believe in, you have to be willing to pay the price.”
Women who are skipping work should be prepared for women to lose their jobs after participating in the strike.
The strike is not empowering to women. It will not advance women in the workforce. It does not prove to these women’s bosses they deserve a raise.
And maybe the women of MSNBC are afraid of losing their jobs. Chicks On The Right highlights how they all showed up for work today:

That’s certainly a lot of women who showed up for work today. Hm…
… But if MSNBC really wanted to show solidarity with their topless pussyhat-wearing sisters (and brothers, in some cases) – they would have preemptively given all their female employees the day off and made the men cover the news. It’s only fair!
MassLive presents the women on the Hill who decided to walk off the job, but not really. Even the libs inside the belt way couldn’t leave jobs in solidarity to support their sisters:
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, and U.S. Reps. Barbara Lee, D-California; Lois Frankel, D-Florida; Brenda Lawrence, D-Michigan; Linda Sanchez, D-California; Pramila Jayapal, D-Washington; Cheri Bustos, D-Illinois; and Jackie Speier, D-California, joined Clark in commemorating International Women’s Day outside the Capitol.
Despite their walk out, the congresswomen intend to still vote on the floor Wednesday and partake in their regular duties, according to Clark’s office.
