So. There has been a move afoot to make a mark on this International Women's Day by promoting the idea that women should stay away from their jobs and do no work. Even work like shopping for groceries and cleaning house. That would show the world how important women are to daily life and the huge economic impact women normally have. There have to be other things but no one has really answered the question of what exactly .
It is beginning to seem as though this will be very hit and miss as far as how many women actually go through with this idea. It also looks like the main group not going to work will be women teachers in many school districts. So many in places like Alexandria Virginia that the superintendents have called off school for today. This means other women who can't afford to take off work will have to scramble to find child care and the money to pay for it.
Speaking of Women's Day and marches, last week while walking Ferdie I passed a woman wearing one of those vagina hats and honestly, it was very weird. I've seen them on tv and news reports but in person it looks just plain silly.
