    Default International Woman's Day

    I just wanted to mention that today is International Woman's Day. I wanted to mention it because I went to a march in support of woman's equality, which I'm sad to say is still a goal that needs to be worked toward.

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Yeah like it was such a big awareness ho hum, who knew about it much? Do you think the media obscured it due to lack of story potential...I have to say the attitude remains poor.

    International Women's Day (IWD) is marked on the 8th of March every year. It is a major day of global celebration of women. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.

    ...became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day. In other regions, however, the original political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.
    Personally I find the lack of attention on such a day trivialized when placed alongside Mother's and Valentine's day.

    Equality remains unbalanced in society. Personally I'd have thought women being life givers that the roles might have been highlighted when men are created inside woman's wombs. How astonishingly different society might be, just with this one change, to accept women as true equals without subtly undermining your will. Its all kind of backwards with the injustices that go on around the world, it is, makes your heart stop just a bit. Consider religious literature, how many chapters of the Bible are written in a female point of view...to say the least lopsided like politics.

    Either way I thought I'd say stuff.

    Bless and take care you wonderful women of the world, you make the world go round.

    It's kinda funny how you women are so bad at organizing events, that I missed your special day completely.

    There already is such day. It's called Valentine's Day.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
