My concern is that at the moment’s #WithoutUs shall be simply a slight inconvenience to males & the capitalist system, nothing extra. That will probably be simply one other day of unpaid go away/absence from college for others. That somebody could also be unfairly dismissed for staying away. Simply one other day in SA
