    Agreed. Unless there is a Men's Day it just points up the idea that women are inferior to the actual important reference group, men.

    I hate all this sort of implicit inferiority thing. Black Lives Matter --- but not white lives, because they are the implicit reference everything is compared to.

    Of course! And Chelsea Manning, too. If you won't affirm that men can change into women just by thinking about it, you must not be an International Woman to be celebrated.

    Sheeeeeeeeeeesh.

    i don’t know, IRosie - but you were right about why they were arrested. Sarsour et al were told by police several times they would be arrested if they did not disperse. They were arrested for disorderly conduct.

    This is obviously a propaganda piece that was cut and pasted from some Interweb site. Look at the broken lines of text. Garbage. I hate propaganda.

    It is a Rocky Road to Power for Rural Women

    It's A Rocky Road To Power For Rural Women

    From Hollywood and Bollywood to the media, NGO and corporate worlds, stories about harassment and discrimination against women in the workplace have captured global attention for months. And rightly so.

    But what about the millions of rural women facing these injustices, who almost never make the headlines?

    Development agencies have struggled to find ways to help rural women overcome obstacles in male-dominated societies and to gain an education, to own land, to take out loans, to earn a living and to gain equal rights in all arenas.

    Wikipedia: International Men's Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated every year on November 19th. Inaugurated in 1992 on 7 February by Thomas Oaster.[1] The project of International Men's Day was conceived one year earlier on 8 February 1991.[2] The project was re-initialised in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago.[3] The longest running celebration of International Men's Day is Malta, where events have occurred since 7 February 1994.[4]

    Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, who revived the event, chose 19 November to honour his father's birthday and also to celebrate how on that date in 1989 Trinidad and Tobago's soccer team had united the country with their endeavours to qualify for the soccer world cup.

    ***************************************************************
    Uh-huh. Trinidad, Tobago, Malta. Soccer. Big holiday about men, huh?

    I'm guessing it will be awhile before Google puts up one of its doodles about International Men's Day. Like, never.

    IMO, this so-called holiday is an insult to women, and they should stop this kind of patronizing business right now.
