Women's day

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

It's strange that searching Google News for international women's day yields mostly results from the developing world, and that the CBC website's feature is "the biggest milestones in pop feminism," highlighting a photo of Lucy Lawless as Xena and checking off on its list such intellectual heavyweights as Phil Donahue, Helen Reddy, Maude, Eurythmics, and Destiny's Child.

I'm the lone man in my house, with a wife and two daughters, so today is important to me. It's not that the day has to be All Serious (the CBC article is pretty entertaining), but International Women's Day is something that still needs to exist, and not frivolously. So I'll note it here, and then get out of the way.
