Happy Women’s Day to you all
Today’s being celebrated as the day of women around the world. People are talking about women, they’re sharing stories about women that inspire them. There are images being circulated and talks being given. Speeches being made and social media posts being uploaded. Yet there’s something worth noting about it all.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
So, as I was saying, It’s International Women’s Day today and the whole world is talking about it.
We’ve got famous women talking about women.

So basically, pretty much everyone’s made it their top priority to talk about how important today is for women
Happy #womensday to all those women who face daily harassment,abuse & misogyny because we men don't do enough to stop it.

We even have controversial politicians chipping in on all the fun
We must not only fight to eradicate discrimination against women, we must also adhere to our Islamic values and treat women with respect

And let’s not forget news channels.
God bless news channels for such life changing headlines…

Wonderful isn’t it? That today women are finally given some attention?
You might not have noticed something, though. Something pretty dark about all ways women are being celebrated today.
And once you realize it, it’s a pretty sad state of affairs.
Here’s what’s wrong with all these “celebrations”, today
So if you want everyone to stop talking about it. Do something for women and the whole world will shut up. Till then happy whatever, guys. Same shit, different year.
