I'm getting involved in the Women's Day activities around here, because it'll be fun and it's good to get involved. But how do these official days manage to get so big? How on earth can a country like Afghanistan, where girls have to fight to be educated, have an official Women's Day holiday? Obviously, it does not mean the same thing everywhere.
The world is mad.
Luckily, my sense of humour is intact.
As a historical note, however, I will just remind everyone that these silly "International Day"s of whatever have placed massive international pressure on non-participating,non-believing, non-accepting countries to DO SOMETHING,NOW.
It might be incremental, but it does work. Slowly.
Which means that by 2150, the burka will be a thing of the past. Or maybe 2500.
Without laughter the world would be a very boring place.
