Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is the 100th International Women’s Day. To recognize this, it is important to realize how far women truly are from equality. being about half the population, women make far less than half the income and own far less than half the property. Women are far more likely to be raped than men are. In some countries, women are still denied the vote. Patriarchal religions are used to infringe on the rights of women and to hold them back. Too many places infringe on women’s reproductive rights. The list can go on and on.
Feminism is more necessary than ever.
Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day. I thought I’d mark the occasion by getting to the point quickly:
WOMEN ARE PEOPLE
And that, dear readers, is feminism in three words.
