A man’s thoughts on “A Day Without a Woman”

On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equality, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.

In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women’s March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system — while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.

Having recently learned about A Day Without a Woman, I have to say:

I’m disappointed.

This is why:

Women and minorities fear for their safety in a Christian-majority nation.

Christianity — the religion that says:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
~ Matthew 11:28

‘Whatever you did to the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did to me.’
~ Matthew 25:40

Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner…
~ Exodus 22:21


Why, in a nation that, judging by demographics, is supposed to exemplify Christian values, do people feel the need to remind themselves that their lives matter?


Many Christians aren’t acting in the image of Christ like they’re supposed to.

Christ — the man who said:

“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
~ John 8:7

I support the women who march for the acknowledgement of their inherent dignity.


I just wish a march wasn’t necessary to acknowledge that which is obvious:

Women are awesome.
