Did the American women’s strike have any actual real-world effects?

which reminded me to ask this question: Did the recent women’s strike in America have any real-world effect? I understand that some high schools closed for the day. But were there any other noticeable effects in the real world? I assume not. But if I am wrong, please say so in the comments.

  1. It is hard to say what kind of direct affect it may have had. What it really does is continue to brainwash women into believing that there is some kind of sisterhood upon which they can rely and that women are actually chomping at the bit to accomplish just as much as men do, but men are holding them back. All of which is false.

    It sets up enmity between men and women. It messes up the normal relationship between the sexes. It is an attitude that is absolutely toxic to family formation. It leads to more and more women ending up like Chelsea Handler and Madonna: old, bitter, alone, and empty. Nothing but jobs and consumerism.

    Who benefits from that?

      Yes. Agreed. But I also get the impression that “all those women” taking the day off made no difference. No industries closed down; the Internet stayed up; and so on.

      I have no problem with competent women doing jobs of any kind. But feminism seems to create women who are useless in the bedroom, kitchen, garage and office.

      • Oh right, exactly! I get your point now. Of course, it was mostly the useless women who stayed home. Women who actually are useful in the workforce mostly went to work. All feminists managed to do with this event is prove that feminists are pretty much useless. 😂

        A lot of women said they were still going to work.

        I wonder if feminists will try this stunt again. I suspect they won’t. It was a flop; they won’t admit it; but they will quietly realise that it was not a good idea.

    From what I heard, schools in Alexandria, Virginia and Prince George’s County, Maryland were closed 8 March. Both are in the Washington DC metro area. Four women were arrested in New York City for either blocking the sidewalk or obstructing traffic in front of the Trump Tower. That is all the news. I think the event was a big fizzle.

      I was on Facebook yesterday. I know a lot of American feminists (poets mostly). I didn’t see anything on real-world effects (apart from the school closures). As you say, it was apparently a “fizzle”. I am pretty sure that feminists demonstrating that they are not required in the real world is not wise from their perspective, to say the least.

    Nah. It had no negative effects at all. Now if men did it the entire system would come grinding to a halt. The women would be on their knees very quickly begging the men to return.

      Men would never do it. We are too responsible. Feminists have no idea how much men simply find them ridiculous, in private.

      No, they’d NEVER do that — that would require that they’d have to be humble and contrite, which is NOT in their feminist-inspired nature of arrogance and superiority.
      They’d do just as they have done in the area of marriage: after decades of biasing the legal system against men and driving away men with their arrogant attitudes of superiority and hatred, they complain that they can’t find a ‘Good Man’ to marry, while all the time ignoring or denying that their actions are repulsive to any sane man.
