We get so PC we cannot call them our women, like we would my buddy. Well my lady friends who are pressing their issues are my women. I love them and at least 3 blood relations are taking part. Push it to the limit ladies. Get seen and get heard. And do not stop. Just me, but that is how I feel. Do not oppose, celebrate and act in harmony with that is right. Demand by righteousness not by entitlement. Be like Anthony who we must have a day of.

I understand. It is good what you say. No one "needs" to march or vote. It is perfectly acceptable.
I can hardly wait for a middle aged white fat guy march. We really get hammered. But we do not march.
Eric, when you bring it to a more global scale, as pointing out women in some countries do not have rights, it is wo striving for. Hope for the future.
Good for you, Dear shan!
Not sure, Faith, if you refer 2 my original answer or the reply to Eric.
Shan and Faith, I think we are in accord. I was raised by a mom who believed in standing up and I raised my daughters to also. My wife is a wonderful force to be reckoned with. That which is in common is seeking truth and standing for something.
No doubt, strong women are forces to be reckoned with!
Tamara, I think those were headline getters. And of course there are factions between women as there are between men. Each should be respected.
Feminists have told me I'm not a real woman because I'm not a feminist. Talk about identity politics dividing people!
I wonder if people who say "I'm not a feminist" actually know what the definition of feminism is or if they just judge based on extremists
Feminism: "the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes"
Do you disagree?
Great notion and one that women in my life follow and I support. But you have to be a blind dumb idiot not to see the divisiveness of Gloria and Madonna and Judd. My ladies marched and I paid some freight -- to support not to teat down. Wicked.
First wave feminism - women are equal to men. Fourth wave feminism - men are toxic and inferior to women. I am a feminist from the classic perspective, not the modern one.
Most women I know are self-proclaimed feminists, myself included, and not one would say that men are toxic/inferior. I wish people who agreed w/ the actual definition were more vocal about being feminists to counter the extremists who muddy it.
My mom was a feminist as early as the 1940's. By the 90's she was the first lady chair of a major hospital in Arizona. I consulted for her so as to use Robert's rules to bully chauvinist Doctors. She insisted on being called Chairman.
It is strange putting it as "my women" or "your women" But how else can you relate about all the women in your life -- the list would be endless. You could say "the women in your life" but I like the non-PC verbiage better for fun's sake.
Aime, it is good to hear from you. Isn't it cool that it is world wide (unless in a place where women meet machine guns). The battle is not over.
A fun thing in my home we think there is a sleeping Tigris. I do not think that this lady will sit back.
Thank you Brad you just made me laugh. You kind of did what these common radicals are doing nowadays. You do not answer the question but rather make fun of it. "did your women march for women" Sure sounds like a straight forward question.
