Big day today, peeps! Not only did we lose an hour of sleep last night (thanks Daylight Savings Time), but we’re celebrating International Women’s Day! Even google is doing it!
To be quite honest, I don’t remember this happening before. The big women’s celebration, not the time change. I look forward to that every year with a mixture of happiness and dread. Dread for losing an hour, happiness for the fact that it will be lighter later. There’s something so wonderful about that.
Yet, I digress. When did International Women’s day become such a big deal? Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I feel in a way, that it’s just another way to separate us from men. Men don’t have an International Men’s day. Every day is that for them. Will this help us in our quest for equality? Or will it hurt us? Only time will tell I guess.
In the mean time, enjoy the sunshine and live in hope!
