International Women’s Day

We have been on this earth for a long time. We have built things, created things, lived together, fought against each other, overcome turmoil and unthinkable odds, yet not all “man” was created equal. Well, according to some "men" they were but we are forgetting the smarter, brighter, more talented gender.

It is possible that the last few years of economic turmoil could have been avoided, wars could have been averted and we'd all be in a much better place if women were running the joint. When you look at North America's largest corporations, equality is not something that springs to mind. Thousands of years of evolution and we still need discuss this. How sad.

Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.

These are the countries that honor Women's Day: Canada, Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Bhutan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Ecuador, Estonia, Dominican Republic, Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Finland Iceland, India, Italy, Israel, Laos,Latvia, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Malta, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Seychelles, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Spain, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, United States, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, , Zambia. It’s a long list, but it’s not long enough.

Now get out of her way, she has work to do.
