Does Women's Day mean something to you?

Tomorrow it is the Women's Day. Many restaurants and malls will seize every chance to have business. So they have promotion for this festival. Since I don't have a day off, so it means nothing special for me. It is just like an ordinary day. But it seems my son will have a break in the afternoon since most teachers in his school are females

Businesses are quick to use any excuse for promotions and increased sales, aren't they?

It does not seem to be observed much down here... I didn't see any promotions or signs in stores or other businesses. I certainly am not aware that today is Women's Day.

Hope it is a nice day for people there. You won't have the day off? That's too bad.

Not every woman will have a day off. But women who work in some official departments will have a half day off work.

It does not really affect me youless, but I am happy to know it and will recall it because you have told me it. I am sorry you do not have the day off.

I'm not sure what this day means. What is the intent of having an International Women's Day? Women are women every day. Women should be treated with respect every day. Why is there a special day unless it is to bring awareness to violence against women and help bring it to an end. I don't know how having a day like this can accomplish that. I'm home alone all day. No one is going to acknowledge the fact that I am a woman but I'll be expected to do my duties as a housewife.

As in the past women had less power than men. I even wonder whether this festival comes from USA. At that time women didn't have rights to vote.
