International Women’s Day

March 8 is International Women’s Day, a day to mark women’s struggles for human rights and celebrate successes. Hillary is running for president, we’re seeing more female CEOs, and women arguably are more independent and successful than ever. However, women still face challenges: they lag behind men in pay and managerial positions, especially in those that lead to high profile promotions or lucrative career paths. Women (though not in my household) still do most of the domestic labor and child rearing–even when working. And that is in the Western world! In other countries and continents, women are forbidden to drive or are forced to undergo female circumcision. Please visit the Global Fund for Women to learn more.
