Happy International Women’s Day! One of my favorite holidays that no one in America celebrates…which is a shame. I think that International Women’s Day has such potential–it’s a celebration of women without the guilt and angst associated with Mother’s day. Plus, in my mind, because I discovered it while living in Russia, it has slightly vague socialist overtones…celebrate the women, heroes of our great progressive culture.
So, BCC readers, as celebration of this great heroic day of progressivist good is basically a blank slate here in America, I solicit your suggestions. How should we celebrate International Women’s Day? (Can’t think of anything buy flowers for the women you love…Russia still does some things right…)
