When I logged onto the Internet today and alerted one of the lady members of my buddy list it was International Women’s Day, her response was underwhelming. I can quote it for you, “Thbthbt…whatevs.” I get it. Most of you are reading this on your fancy computer, phone or tablet while trying to distract yourself from the job your education helped get you. The one you that pays you money for your skills. Well, listen…you are pretty fortunate that spreadsheets are your biggest worry right now. Most women in the world have bigger fish to fry (like being married off as children and rape as warfare). So, thank the women who paved the way for your lifestyle filled with autonomy and overpriced things and then find out more about what women elsewhere are up against. Bonus points for actually doing something proactive!
