(Well, at least where I live it’s afternoon…)
Friday March 8th is International Women’s Day, and I thought that I might as well post something or the other about that since I may or may not post something else until then.
Some of you (and lots of people out there) ask, why is women’s day important?
Lemme tell you why.
- Women have not always had the same rights (and many still don’t) that men have had. It’s important to recognize how much our world has grown in the area of gender equality.
- To celebrate all of the important women in our lives- and all the women who have achieved great things in spite of gender barriers.
- We need to highlight the lives of everyone (meaning men and women and everyone else) who work hard to fight for what they believe- everyone deserves an equal chance in all areas of life.
It’s important to note that Women’s Day does not mean that it is only for women to celebrate. Everyone should rejoice that we have come so far- but still have a long way to go. Oh, and here’s something else:
Feminism isn’t for girls and women only. Feminism means that you believe that females deserve equal rights. Men and boys believe that too. Feminism doesn’t mean that you believe women are better than men. That’s an extremist case- most feminists don’t believe that at all, because it’s not true.
For some reason, almost all of my guy friends think that feminism means that… I really don’t know why. It makes me sad to think that feminists have such a bad rep because of all the people who have made others believe this.
Thanks for reading!
P.S. I have lots of new designs and cool stuff like that so I re-did my send off.
P.P.S. Remember that Halló in the beginning? That’s Icelandic, in honor of 2018’s country that’s the most equal towards both genders.
