schools to close Wednesday as women request day off to protest At least two U.S. school districts have announced plans to close on Wednesday in anticipation of staff shortages for the nationwide "Day Without A Woman" strike. The one-day protest, which is ชุดคลุมท้องแฟชั่นเกาหลี สวย ๆ ถูก ๆ being held in conjunction with International Women's Day, is intended to draw attention to the plight of women in the workplace who on average are paid less than men. The protest is already affecting dozens of schools, which are heavily staffed by women. The strike organizers include some of the planners of the Jan. 21 women's march on Washington and other U.S. cities. In Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C., Superintendent of Schools Alvin Crawley said classes for the entire district, which serves more than 15,000 students, would be canceled on Wednesday after 300 teachers and other staff members asked to have the day off. "The decision is based solely on our ability to provide sufficient staff to cover all our classrooms, and the impact of high staff absenteeism on student safety and delivery of instruction," Crawley said in an announcement. Also canceling classes for the day are Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools in North Carolina, where officials anticipated that 400 to 2,000 staffers would not show up for work.

Still, though, the entire affair is drab, lifeless and lacks any sense of Naboos love of couture. #19: The Picnic Sun Dress As a general rule of thumb, you can count on Padme to wear disproportionately cheery things whenever shes alone with Anakin. Shes convinced that hes not that bad a guy (despite being the only Jedi to wear black leather) and this is her way of showing it. #19: The Handmaidens Smock Why Padme chose to wear two layers of thick, cotton-like clothing and baggy, heavy pants to a swelteringly hot desert planet is unclear. But she did. And it didnt look very good. #18: The Cyrene Silk Mourning Dress Neither Amidalas hair game nor her dress game were on point here, but you have to take into account that Naboo had just been invaded and her people were all in a state of mourning. #17: The Impractical Velvet Battle Dress Both Padme and her decoy are wearing dresses meant for battle. Let that sink in for a second. As if a flowing dress on the battlefield werent ridiculous enough, these gowns just so happen to be made out of velvet, far from an ideal fabric for a combat situation.
