Here's more background from the organizers at WOMEN & ALLIES: 

Vision: Protection of women's rights and the rights of all vulnerable groups in this country.

Mission: Mobilizing women and allies to leverage our collective power as citizens for immediate action against any effort to erode the rights of women and other vulnerable groups.

Strike out message: The president-elect has demonstrated overt contempt for women and a troubling sexual misogyny before and during his campaign. As such, we have no reason to believe that the new president or his nominees or the Republican Congress will stand up for women's rights. So we must take action ourselves. By striking out on December 12th we demonstrate our collective power as citizens and our determination to act as a check against any effort to erode the rights of women. In addition, we stand in solidarity with the myriad other groups the president-elect has maligned during his shameful campaign.

Victory: On the 12th of December, women and allies in cities across the country unify to demonstrate our collective power. We deliver the message in a unified voice that we are ready to stand against any government action that would serve to erode the rights of women and other vulnerable groups.
