March 8th was International Women's Day. On the one hand, I love that we take this time to celebrate the significant contributions women have made, and are making, to our culture, our society and our world. But I have to ask: Why do women get one day a year and men get 364?
Which leads me to a bigger question: Why do we need an International Women's Day at all? After centuries of smashing myths and shattering glass ceilings, are women still not equal to men? Women of color are even more unequal. Are we still an “other”? How do we fix this?
