 Week-long ‘Mother’s Day Strike’ set to protest overturn of Roe
by Rachel Scully - 05/07/22 9:14 AM ET

TikTok users have planned a week-long women’s labor strike set to begin on Mother’s Day in protest of the leaked Supreme Court opinion set to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The strike aims to push the government to enact the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would establish a statutory right for health care providers to provide, and patients to receive, abortion care without restrictions, therefore codifying abortion rights protections into federal law.

Allison Kolarik, 38, came up with the idea for the strike, after learning of the leaked opinion, according to NBC News.

“My gut reaction was one of, ‘Of course they did’ … and then rage,” Kolarik, who uses gender-neutral pronouns, told NBC.

Kolarik, an apparel company owner from New Jersey, later posted a video to TikTok to their more than 62,000 followers calling for a “national women’s strike.” Kolarik also established an official website to push for more support.

Their movement went viral on the video-sharing platform and has garnered both support and critics, with the #MothersDayStrike2022 garnering over 550,000 views. Kolarik told NBC that at least 600,000 people have reached out via the website to express support for the strike.
