That is all.

Wishing everyone on MN a beautiful, sunny, peaceful day of walking tall in the world.

(Literally or metaphorically :o)

Have you seen this video? Judi Dench & Daniel Craig in support of IWD.

I just posted this on chat before remembering about this topic- but then think EVERYONE should see the message.

My favourite quote is 'Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission'

I remember reading a lot of Catherine McKinnon when I was studying Women's Studies at Uni. It is depressing that 18 years on from me starting that course there is so much repression and inequality still. We will just have to keep our voices loud, strong and united.

Thanks for all the links.

Is it true that Woman's Hour didn't mention it? Shock Someone has just told me on FB that they only talked about Pancake Day.

Happy International Women's Day. Smile

I am going to post a FB status telling all my friends that it is International Women's Day and linking to some newspaper articles and the VAW strategy document etc. Grin

Happy Womens' Day to all of you. I'm celebrating with a big glass of cider wine and thinking about how best to use the rage to make some good changes in my own life. Started off by asking for a fat pay rise - time to start asking for what I am worth rather than being fobbed off and patted on the head.

Is there a 'can you be a feminist and enjoy cooking pancakes?' thread yet? ;)
