International Women’s Day

Posted by Irresponsibility

It goes without say the whole notion of ‘International Women’s Day’ makes me want to vomit. Women make up roughly half the population of the globe, do two-thirds of the world’s work (plus virtually all the unpaid labour), we take all the risk of pregnancy and child-bearing and do the vast majority of child-rearing. We are also subject to systematic discrimination in every culture and setting, ranging from the merely infuriating to the murderous.

For this we are “given” one fucking day? It’s not empowering, it’s insulting.
