Demonstrators were out in Cambridge Wednesday morning to take part in protests related to “A Day Without a Woman,” a movement meant to highlight the importance of women to the nation’s economy.
Several women donned pink hats from January’s Women’s March and held signs denouncing President Trump and supporting Planned Parenthood.
‘‘A Day Without a Woman’’ is the first major action by organizers of the Women’s March since the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, when millions of women poured into the streets in protest of misogyny, inequality and oppression.
The action is aimed at highlighting the effect of women on the country’s socio-economic system and demonstrating how the paid and unpaid work of women keeps households, communities and economies running, an organizer said.
The protest was timed to coincide with International Women’s Day.
