The organizers of the Women’s March on Washington are planning another event that will highlight women’s issues.

The organizers announced on Instagram that they are planning the event as a “general strike” called “the day without a woman.”

The Huffington Post reported that details about the event have not yet been made public and the organizers still haven’t announced a date for the event.

The Women’s March on Washington took place the day after President Trump’s inauguration along with “sister marches” in cities across the country and around the world.

More than 500,000 people attended the march in Washington, according to ABC News.

The Women’s March gained a lot of media attention for its size and because it denied official sponsorships to pro-life feminist groups, Breitbart News reported.

People poked fun of Monday’s announcement on Twitter:
