Happy International Women's Day folks.

May I ask why we need celebration? Like lgbt parade's month, black history month, International Men's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc..

I like the celebration but somehow I feel being patronised like my sex/gender is weak that need to be celebrated like after those gender equality backlashed, I don't know why but I feel like insulted.

It's for the ones who need it, to this day thousands of women are still fighting for their emancipation, they can't get education, can't have the same rights as their male counterparts, are victims of domestic, sexual abuse, femicide, genital mutilation etc. I've never felt like someone called me weak just because they recognize that our gender has been subject to sexism & the patriarchy throughout the centuries and it's a good day to honour and remember the women who fought and are still fighting for the day when we won't need a "women's day".

@HannibalAteMeOut There is no patriarchy. It’s a myth invented by neo-feminists because they are sexist against men.

@TheGreatestEver123 oh okay. Good to know 🙂
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

I can't see why this would be an insult to women, nor it being patronizing towards women. It's about recognizing how far we've come towards gender equality today, but also how far we have left to go yet.

It is for all of the women today who's still less worthy in the eyes of others, because they are women. And it's a reminder about equality, that women should have the same respect as anyone else. It's a celebration for how feminism made women stop be forced to wear skirts and heels to work, it's a celebration in the fight we have upon the world, that we are not gonna settle for less.

It’s mostly just identity politics and virtue-signalling. It doesn’t make any difference to anything. I don’t celebrate or even recognise any of these events personally.

Au contraire my dear!! You need to be celebrated more than ever as your sex as a "she" is endangered thanks to these "woke people".
