Happy women's day!

Humanity, after just a few thousand years of civilisation, has yet to achieve its full potential. We scrabble round, dominated by ego, competitiveness and hatred. At the centre of our problems is the way women are treated in all human societies. Today is a day to reflect on how far the feminist struggle has come, and how far it has to go. Today is the day to love the women in your life (whether you're a man or a woman).

There is a Sanskrit saying: ‘God exists where women are respected’.

God therefore doesn’t exist in many places on our planet just yet..

Bravo Jeremy

Women make up more than half of the world' population. If only they were not marginalised in every field - we might be living in another world. Like the Sanskrit saying

with all the god speak in Nigeria, god certainly does not exist here. the way women are treated, the way they treat each other is quite chilling. I guess this is a day both for reflection and celebration.
Happy women's day for all you women out there. May you continue to fight the good fight.

Vanilla, they are hardly marginalized in every field. Take childbirth, for instance.

Was brought up by a single mother, thank God for moms. Thank God for wimmin!

Fred, I don't think biological functions like childbirth, eating, or taking a dump count as "fields" to anyone except the most bone idle.
