Teachers observe #ADayWithoutAWoman as part of International Women’s Day
By Micah Tam
On March 8, not only was it International Women’s Day, it was also the observation of the #ADayWithoutAWoman protest, which acted as an extension of the #ADayWithoutAnImmigrant protest. On this day, women all over the world struck to show how the absence of women would impact society and the economy.
Among the women who chose to strike as part of the #DayWithoutAWoman protest were Summit Expeditions teachers Noelle Easterday, who teaches Anthropology, and Eli Cetto, who teaches Visual Arts. They came back with many stories and new experiences.
Here is a link to an open letter written by Ms. Eli reflecting on her personal reasons for striking.
Below is a look at the protest Teacher Easterday (left) and Ms. Eli (right) attended.
