Bustle editor Julie Alvin discussed Wednesday's "Day Without Women" with Tucker Carlson, saying the demonstrations and departures from work illustrated women's importance in society.
Alvin's website went dark for the day in recognition of Women's Day.
"Society doesn't function without women," Alvin said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
Carlson responded that "taking the day off is not impressive, anyone can do it."
Alvin said the demonstrations were an example of "a day of action" rather than a "day of fun" as some have dismissed it.
She disagreed with Carlson's view that the strike could be seen as a motion of "hostility toward white men."
Carlson called some of the statements made by supporters of the demonstrations a "presupposition that women are weak victims put upon by men."
"I don't think that we are weak, I think we are showing our strength," Alvin said responded.
