A Day without Women
Today is the National Day without Women and TLT is a blog created by and run by women. As news came down the pike recently that the ACA replacement plan would not require insurers to cover maternity care at the same time that there are assaults on a women’s ability to get coverage for things like birth control while those in government refer to women as “hosts”, we have decided to go silent today here at TLT. Without women, this amazing blog dedicated to serving teens and raising awareness of YA lit would not exist. Without women, libraries around our country would not be able to open their doors today as librarianship is a female dominated profession. Women’s rights are human rights. Women matter.
If you are interested, here are some of our previous posts on women’s rights issues that you may wish to read today.

We will be back tomorrow with new posts. Today we wear red and ponder what a world without women would be like.
