Happy International Women\'s Day to all of us!

International Men's Day Mar 8, 2002

When is it, if at all, and if not why not?

Int'l Men's Day Mar 8, 2002

Well, the feminist stance would probably be that the other 364 days of the year are International Men\'s Day, but why not have a special day indeed? Any ideas as to a good date for such an event...

International persons day Mar 8, 2002

Anytime (tomorrow?) would be fine, as long as it doesn\'t clash with this other major event that I\'m planning. All that\'s needed to qualify for participation is to be accredited as a person at Proz (I will discuss this with the backward-glancing man) by sending in a recent photo, video clip and some DNA. If three other accredited persons attest to your humanity (although the category might soon be extended to include some members of the animal kingdom and small flat stones), you get a little (P) after your name and loads of goodwill.

Proposal for a date for int'l men's day Mar 8, 2002

Tomorrow and/or the day after and/or the day after that and so on, with the exception of International Women\'s Day since I have to look after the kids that day.

isn't there a men's day on March 10th Mar 8, 2002

I sort of remeber that girls got gifts from boys on the 8th, and then guys said that the 10th is men\'s day (however this was a long time ago, while I was still in school, and the memories are not very fresh)

Have both! Mar 8, 2002

I have no problem with an International Women\'s Day, AS LONG AS there is (will be) an International Men\'s Day, too. So I will celebrate any of them only, when the other exists, too. If somebody is serious about equal rights, then having both should not be a problem for that person.

Our rights are quite new! Mar 8, 2002

Did you know that 120 years ago the U.S. hitorian Francis Packman prayed God to deliver America from the \"the most reckless of experiments\" (meaning suffrage) propelled by \"a few agitators\"?

That three years later, William Hammond assured that there were \"grave anatomical and physiological reasons\" why women should not be in politics, and, even worse, that \"a peculiar neurotic conditions called the hysterical is grafted on the organ of woman.\" (One supposes he meant the brain)?



We had to fight a lot for our rights, that\'s why I celebrate the Woman\'s Day!



Regards,



Clarisa Moraña

We have it in Poland, really! On the 4th of April. It\'s not as popular as Womens\' Day, but we do our best!
