All across the country Wednesday, women, including some in Wyoming, went on strike in order to demonstrate their economic power as part of “A Day Without Women.” The event coincided with International Women’s Day.
Laramie resident Heather Rockwell said she decided to take the day off from her job after she participated in the Women’s March in Cheyenne in January. She said she has never gone on strike before.
“I’m also an hourly worker,” said Rockwell. “So it’s sort of one those situations of if I don’t work, I don’t get paid. And I was willing to accept that.”
