My Tribute to the Women of the World

Today is International Women's Day.

I wanted to write a post to mark the occasion but there are so many good ones out there. Like this one, this one, and this one.

And since everybody knows that I support the struggle of women for equality just as strongly as I support the gay struggle.

And because I love women and believe that only they can save the planet.

And today isn't just a call to solidarity and action..... it's also a CELEBRATION.

I thought I might just play this song...

You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger

If I have to
I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

Because for me that just about says it all.

To my Granny and my Mum and my sister who taught me what feminism is all about. And all my female friends, and all the wonderful women of the world.

Happy International Women's Day !!!!

You are my hope for the future. The struggle is a hard one. But you are STRONG.

And together we are INVINCIBLE...
