Study International Women’s Day

‘Does feminist mean large unpleasant person who’ll shout at you or someone who believes women are human beings?  To me it’s the latter, so I sign up’-Margaret Atwood

When I was researching my, poem-idea-philosophy on International Men’s Day called “Men”, I came across an article interviewing Margaret Atwood on International Women’s Day 2017.

I picked up a thread about ‘Women Leaders’ from a google e-mail.  And this led me to a good article from The Telegraph.

This world wide event needs to be better represented on the internet to help celebrate women’s achievements across the spectrum of politics to the social-while calling for gender equality.

I am happy Goggle Doodle came up with a great idea last year.  They asked women and girls to complete the sentence ‘One day I will’, talking about their dreams and ambitions.

So, Wednesday, March 8, 2017 is the day to campaign, go to an event, check global news, use IWD, be informed about IWD.
