Happy International Women’s Day, sisters of the world!
Yet, EVERY Day needs to be Women’s Day!
What message do we send to our girls, our sisters, our men, our world – that there is ONE day a year in which we are celebrated?
That for the rest of the year we are taken for granted?
That 364 days of the year are someone else’s days?
That one day is enough?
That we are so unappreciated that a day needs to be set aside to remind everyone of our existence?
Why is it that all the unappreciated sections of the population need a “ghetto day” on the calendar?
Yes, with time “Father’s Day” was added (just for equality’s sake, of course), and “Grandparents Day” too.
But no “Men Day”, ha?
Is it because men are seen, witnessed, heard, and lay the rules often enough, that it would make it ludicrous to set a side a day for them?
Is “International Women’s Day” redundant, then?
Should we accept our lot and celebrate it once a year, or should we call for it’s abolishment, in favor of visibility, acknowledgement, and validity every day of the year?
What do you think?
