Public holidays has it’s advantages- and disadvantages. It was Women’s Day in SA yesterday, and that is why I am off from (paid) work today.
But should there be a holiday like Woman’s Day – at all?
Yes, I believe that women (most of us, most of the time) are amazing people who should be celebrated. I also believe men (most of them, most of the time) are amazing people who should be celebrated.
Is there any reason to have a special day to celebrate one half of the population, but not special day for the other half? How about celebrating -appreciating, being thankful to, praising the achievements of, commemorating everyone – man, woman, or child, for what they are and do?
Are woman so essentially superior/ inferior to men that we need a day of honor that they do not?
