Over a hundred years ago, a group of committed women demanded that there be a day each year dedicated to women, highlighting the continued inequality they faced in every aspect of their lives. While things have improved for many western women since March 8th was dedicated "women's day" in 1913, the situations is still dire for the female in much of the world.
Despite improvements in the U.S., women still face enormous inequality: in wage separation, in family leave, and in work environments. The Trump administration and some GOP political leaders have pushed forward legislation that will push women back in time, rescinding many of the gains women have made in the last fifty years.
Women must unite and rise up to fight--not only to hold onto the few precious steps we've taken toward greater equality but to smash patriarchy once and for all.
There is no place for patriarchy in our world.
The future is female.
