International Women's Day


March 8 is international women's day. A day that serves to remind society that women's day actually needs to exist.

I consider myself an equalist and I believe that a world governed by men and women in equal ratio would actually finally move society into a healthier era.

Here I do not refer to the women that have climbed the male dominated ladder.  I am talking about highly capable individuals, who just happen to be female, but have a less ruthless or risk taking approach toward the environment and our common future.

That we as a species do not allow women to contribute their knowledge and experience to our global community is archaic. Empathy is valuable and women, whether due to nature, nurture or society are generally more empathic and may be able to envision better longterm solutions.

I would not want to live in a world solely led by women, anymore than I want to continue to experience one led by powerungry men. Maybe one day we will celebrate a good person's day, regardless of their gender.

  1. The idea of a world led solely by women scares me a little. Can you imagine what they'd make us wear?

    Equality is definitely better.

    1. Tights and ruffles. No wait that was centuries ago. Whose idea was that? I hope history does not repeat itself.

  2. I would just settle for women never being treated as "inferior" in any way. Or women not being treated as property in certain male-dominated societies. Equality is fairly easy after that.
