International Women’s Day

March 8, 2012

I don’t want to get all ‘Sistas are doin it for themselves’ and all that jazz but aren’t women brilliant?

Occasionally I wish I was a man so that I could play with my winky all day but in this day and age, that’s where it ends because we’re very rapidly closing the gap between what society in our western culture considers ‘of men’ vs ‘of women’

OK, so it’s not all a bed of roses but still, in other places on the planet Earth, women continue to be seen as second class citizens. They are mistreated, raped, beaten and degraded, purely because of their gender. They are denied the right to education and the freedoms that we ‘Western Women’ take absolutely for granted. Every day.

These are the people I’m thinking about today.
