"A Day Without a Woman" is organized by the same group which organized the Women's March that took place after President Trump's inauguration. Those unable to participate by staying home are asked to wear red to show their solidarity.
In Nashville, a "Solidarity Rally" is planned to take place at Legislative Plaza from 2:30 p.m. through 5 p.m. CST.
However, a counter-movement called "Right2Speak" is instead calling on women to show up to work because "It's what hard-working, free-thinking, liberty-loving, difference-making women do every day."
Organizers of "Right2Speak" say they are serving as a counterbalance to the "far-left," seek to infuse civility to counteract "extreme liberal female voices," and are calling for a return to "truly free speech."
Women taking part in the "counter-movement" are expected to hold power lunches and share social media pictures of how they are making a difference by showing up to work or by helping someone in need.
