    It’s an important day for an important principle, and certain countries have made it an official national holiday, though only three – China, Madagascar and Nepal – make it an official holiday for women only. Here’s what the Telegraph had to say about it today. EDIT: You may not be able to read all of this article, The Telegraph requiring free registration to read only ONE article per week and paid subscription to read more; not worth the bother as there are other online papers who aren’t as greedy.

    Apparently there are a lot of men about who haven’t got the hang of using Google before showing themselves up on Twitter. See this article in the Evening Standard.

    International women’s day – I am all for it. Make it a national holiday worldwide. We are off to a nice restaurant for a nice evening with our ladies from 15 to 80. It is going to be great fun.

    Still, why would anybody want to celebrate the emanicpation of women with a holiday for women only (although there is no equivalent for men), i.e. by discriminating against half of the population. That certainly does not make up for old wrongs.

    Sorry, Jazzy, you are absolutely right. 364  more days of men trying to please their wives. Isn’t that what we were made :rose: for?

    As Eeyore might have said, “I try, I really do, but it seems that no one’s interested. Ho hum.”
