‘A Day Without a Woman’ Backfired, Didn’t It?

An interesting column by Amanda Carpenter at Politico on the mixed messages from the ‘A Day Without a Woman’ strike protest by the Women’s March on Washington protest organizers:

The “Day Without A Women” organizers made a severe misstep by making children and working families, many of whom who can’t easily skip work or get babysitters, into collateral damage for their dead-end, self-soothing political agenda. School may not be in session in Alexandria, in Prince George’s County, in Chapel Hill, or in parts of Brooklyn, but there’s a lesson the nation can learn from these closures. The modern progressive movement doesn’t have any goals. Just feelings, which come before all else.
