Women's Day

There is no need to idolise women
There is no need to demonise women
Just accepting that they are humans like men, would be fine.

The UN had found that women do two-thirds of the world’s work,
while receiving less than 5% of its income,
and owning less than 1% of all assets.
The United Nations further calculated that if women’s work were counted worldwide, their unpaid labor would be worth $11 trillion a year.

Well this might be some years back, but then with data of this kind it does makes sense to have a Women's Day. But I think its pretty stupid to just wish women, because there are plenty of men who care for issues relating to women, and surely there are women who care for issues relating to men. Rather than think in terms of women-men, wouldnt it be better to think in terms of Human Rights?

Belated Women's Day Wishes to All Bloggers.

  1. Hi WD,
    Do agree that women to be treated as fellow humans. I do have some views on this. I think the women want the cake and it too? Say, in office women want to be paid in par with her male counterparts, fair enough. But, when it comes to work I have seen only a few women who are willing to share work and accept additional responsibilities. Whenever there is need to work late, women come up with a bag of reasons that they can't stay late. And the males are SUPPOSED to have no problems in working late. I am not saying all women are like this, but there only a few women who are professional when it comes to work

    PS:Wondered about your gender since there was no name anywhere, the post on staying single was a dead giveaway as no guy would write down pros and cons of being single and then make a decision based on it :-)
