Statue of Liberty Unexpectedly Goes Dark for 2 Hours Before International Women's Day
Many saw a dual symbolism, floating the idea that Lady Liberty was protesting Trump's proposed travel, as well as marking International Women's Day.
The Statue of Liberty went dark for two hours Tuesday night — the eve of International Women's Day.

The unexpected outage at 10 p.m. left the statue with only her crown's interior lights and torch illuminated.
Two hours later, the landmark's official Twitter account said it was "likely related to new emergency generator/Hurricane Sandy recovery project work."
While the lights were out, social media lit up over the symbolism. The incident occurred on the same day the president proposed a new travel ban on citizens from six Muslim nations.
Others found Lady Liberty going dark as a symbol for her standing with the resistance for #DayWithoutWomen. The strike set for Wednesday — International Women's Day — is asking women to skip work to show what it would be like if they were not in their respective positions for a day.
