In the height of the overturned Roe v Wade law that prohibits abortions now in various states; the pushback from women on a global level is to go on a ‘strike’ so to speak. The objective is to withhold sex from men until the new abortion law is overturned.

But This Wouldn’t Be The First Woman Strike

“What happened that day was the first step for women’s emancipation in Iceland,” Vigdis Finnbogadottir, [a divorced single mother, had won Iceland’s presidency in 1980] says. “It completely paralyzed the country and opened the eyes of many men.”

Nevertheless, more recently, on Friday in NYC, many women marched that held signs that read ‘No sex until we have abortion rights.’

The Hashtag #Sexstrike Is Trending On Twitter

In protest of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade [Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States generally protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion]; women rallied throughout the weekend and are expected to trend in more cities. The demonstration of outrage amongst women began on Friday after the decision to take away women’s abortions rights were solidified by SCOTUS.

One person tweeted, ‘I live in New York and I am DOUBLE FURIOUS with the Supreme Court. I want to find people who are coordinating a mass strike.’

Someone else wrote ‘Womxn!Calling for a national #sexstrike No sex with menuntil women’s rights are codified by law. #Allmen #Underhiseye.’
