The organizers of the Jan. 21 Women's March announced Monday that they are planning another event to highlight women's issues.
In a graphic posted to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, the organizers said that they are planning a “general strike” they describe as “a day without a woman.”
Details about the event have not yet been made public, and the organizers said the date is still to be announced.

The Women's March on Washington took place the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration just over two weeks ago. So-called “sister marches” took place across the country that same day. Reports indicate that over 500,000 people attended the event in Washington.
Some social media users poked fun at the Monday announcement:
