International Women’s Day
I want to celebrate International Women’s Day. I do. But in good conscience I can’t. I have seen and experienced far too many occurrences where women have brought down men and other women just to elevate themselves.
I think this day should be celebrated when all women can help each other, elevate each other, and support one another without cattiness, pettiness, and vindictiveness. When women can treat PEOPLE, regardless of gender type, as the same.
I frequently have been subjected to the cattiness and pettiness that exists among women, as recently as today – if you’re one for irony. Especially since one of the said players is an individual whose volunteer role is to support equality and lack of harrassment environment.
Until women can stop treating each other so badly, I will not and cannot support international women’s day.
