A Day Without Women: Mexican women call for a national strike

What would be the impact of a national women’s strike?

On March 9, women will skip work as a way to protest against femicide. If every woman in Mexico stopped working for a day, including unpaid work, the Mexican economy could register losses for over MXN $37,000 million; this figure is higher than oil income obtained in December 2019.
