International Women's Day: this ain't my first time at the rodeo
Today is International Woman's Day --- in which we celebrate half the people on earth with a day.*
That's nice I guess, but these ideas for "celebrating" seem just sad. When half the population of the United States is only represented by 16% of the leadership and cartoons like this appear in major US newspapers:
... well, eating cupcakes and wearing red lipstick to make a political statement just seems ... depressing.
I think on this day I'm going to celebrate International Women's Day with this message to the misogynists and the women who love them (lifted from this great post by Ann Friedman)
