AS you may or may not have noticed we didn’t celebrate International Women’s Day mainly because it is a load of horse manure. We at TCW celebrated our 5th birthday instead – and what a fabulous five years it has been.
Rather belatedly, however, we celebrate International Wimmin’s Day today by hating men.
As Janice Fiamengo of the Fiamengo File explains, there are a lot, and I mean a lot, of reasons to hate men. They are stronger, smarter and braver than women and it drives a lot of women stir crazy to know this. So crazy in fact that they have to have their own little day celebrating how fabulous women are (and by implication how nasty men are.)
So here we say, belatedly and through gritted teeth: Happy International Wimmin’s Day. It’s our big day, and we’ll cry if we want to.
