March 8th, waking up on Woman´s Day.
March 8, 2018 5:47am CST
Good morning, friends. Every March 8th, for such a long time that I don´t remember, I wake up angry. The media are full of red roses, bosses are buying them too for their woman workers and everywhere there are special treats for this half of the world´s population. The rest of the year women are barked at, harrased at, paid less for the same job men do, come home from work to serve their men while they watch TV while drinking beer. Lately a bubbling cauldron has been opened: that of sexual abuse. That does not mean that women are not abused any longer. It just means that some time, in the future, they will be heard more and be protected from cave men. And while I also know that some women DO beat their husbands, it is a minority as compared to the opposite. Let us ask for respect towards women in this day. And I mean respect as a human being, the same one everyone is entitled to no matter what genre. I don´t want roses and I never did (at least not instead of respect). We need the rose of a caring person near us to make us feel worthy. And we need to learn to demand that. Happy Person´s Day!!!
