Happy Women’s Day! Did you even know there WAS such a thing? I like everything this day stands for and try to at least think about it every year. And so should you.
I wanted to write a thoughtful post about the history, the struggles, and the future of the women’s movement and feminism in general. Alas, I am busy being a feminist and pursuing higher education so I can one day use my clinical doctorate to make a difference in the world. If my to-do list is on-track, I may post a synopsis of some of the Native American women I’ve been reading about, later on today.
I also wanted to have a women’s day project of some sort: Write a letter to a politician, volunteer for a female-related cause, DO something to further the cause of the forgotten gender. Maybe tomorrow (today now) I can take some time from audiometry, grad school application procedures, and house-sitting and do something like that.
What I can do (quickly) is suggest some reading you, my dear-readers, should follow up on to get educated/motivated:
The Red Tent
The Triangle Fire
The Beauty Myth
and right now before bed I’m reading Wise Women: The Forgotten World of Native American Women Trailblazers (or something to that effect).
