Is it the way to say we are weaker as we need a day dedicated to us. But then every where we prefer to say we are equal? If we are equal then there should be a Men's Day or this women's day should be abolished...what is your view?
I am not against women's day but just a thought here.
There is an International Men's Day. This is observed on the 19th of November. Women's day generally attracts far more public attention, hence the lack of awareness that Men's Day even exists. If we really were celebrating true equality between the sexes, then public attention, funding and awareness of men's issues would be equivalent to that for women's issues. Consequently International Men's day would be given far greater attention. When the severe economic consequences that will arise from the boy crisis in education start to be felt over the coming years, people's attitudes will change very quickly. That is to say nothing of the effect that family law, divorce law, biased health and welfare funding is going to have (is having) on the plethora of unemployed and undereducated men. People want a vision of the future, think of the London riots happening every week in cities across the western world. My point is simple. The notion that women are the only gender that requires assistance is clearly at odds with reality, easily disproved and on a moral and rational basis, wrong.
Many thanks for you reply here. Truly speaking i was not aware of the men's day on 19th Nov. Thanks. I agree with you here.
That's fine. That was not a reflection on you, but of society. If we really treated men and women equally then society at large would be aware of both days. Feminists go on about male privilege but what about female privilege?
That was the attempt to draw the attention forward. Thank you for connecting with my thought here.
Your welcome and a sincere thank you for doing so.
We already have Valentines and Mother's day. Guys have St. Paddy's and Father's Day. Plus just like with children, every day is woman's day
I don't think that having a national "women"s day is in any way demeaning or suggestive of them being the "weaker" sex. It is simply to honor women as they should be, as does every other "special person's" day.
Perhaps when women are finally recognized as "equals" to men in all respects we can add another holiday and call it "national equality day".
