SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – The nation’s only Latina governor and New Mexico’s first female executive will be working on “A Day Without a Woman.”
A spokesman for Gov. Susana Martinez said the Republican governor will be working out of her office Wednesday as the New Mexico Legislature nears the end of its 60-day session.
Organizers of January’s Women’s March are calling for women to take the day off Wednesday and not spend money to highlight women’s role in society.
The one-day protest is aimed at calling attention to economic bias faced by women. It coincides with the U.N.-designated International Women’s Day.
Marches, rallies and events are planned across the nation, including in Albuquerque.
