Happy International Women’s Day!
I don't care who you are, man, woman, misogynist. You exist because of a woman. Women haven't always received fair treatment in our culture. There are various cultures around the world where women are still treated abominably. In 1908, 15,000 women marched in the streets of New York City, demanding better pay and working conditions. March 8th has since been designated International Women's Day. It's observed in many countries, celebrating the social, cultural, economic, and political achievements around the world. It also stands as a call for greater gender equality around the world.
"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
- Gloria Steinem
The CEO of one the world's largest corporations, General Motors, is a woman. Countries, including India & the UK have had female prime ministers. The US nearly elected a female president in 2016. If you're a guy, honor a woman today (and every day). If you're a woman, I thank you for being you.
