International Women’s Day

Today as you may know it is the  International Women’s Day.

My nephew asked why there even needed to be such a day; we explained:

When women are enslaved, tortured, raped and beaten because they are women,

When women and girls are expected to be abused by the powerful to get where they want in life,

when an organisation pays lower rates for the same jobs as men,

when a country is proud that it  ‘allows’ women to drive,

we NEED an International Womens Day every day.

I could go on, the list is endless.

So Thanks to all of those strong women who have gone before and thanks to to quieter souls in the background who have supported them, be it women or men. Keep going. One day we may get that respect and equality that we seek.
