Happy International Woman´s Day

I´d like to celebrate with all real women in this Forum, I wish all you the best for this day.


So I think the woman´s day is everyday, not only a special day.

It's just a made-up day, no reason why they should. I don't remember many people caring about International Mens Day either.

At least Valentines Day has historical roots and some potential romance about it...

IWD today. Mother's Day next Sunday*

Women are so needy.


*Don't forget UKites. Get your old Ma a card and a biscuit. She changed your pooey nappies, you know (or had the nanny do it, at least).

Happy Women's Day, chick troopers.

Re: Happy International Woman´s Day

I cant figure out the difference between Real and Not Real.

As I will be spending the day building furniture and planting seeds (in the garden(!)) does this exclude me from being a Real Woman?!

No of course not, you are performing menial labour tasks, therefore automatically class as a real woman.

Funny how a simple 'happy women's day' initiated such a heated debate

Re: Happy International Woman´s Day

Here's a serious question for IWD: why do the achievements of successful and powerful women not count if they are not on the left of the political spectrum?

Both Margaret Thatcher and Sarah Palin were/are remarkable women who achieved an enormous amount in what is still very much a man's world - yet they are almost never held up as examples for our daughters to emulate, and subject to ridicule and vilification few male politicians have to go through.

So what gives? Is it really International Women's Day, or just International Women Who Think Like Us Day?
