Women's Day.

I don't like women's day.

No really, I don't.
It is mostly a completely useless thing, where people (and the media) ignore the fact that they were mysoginist all year long, tell woman that they are the most precious thing on this Earth, and then go back to being mysoginists until the next 8th of March.

It could be taken as an opportunity to raise awarness on the current situation of women. Even then, it wouldn't have helped doesn't take one single day to change the thoughts of a population fed sexism every single day of their lives.
The fact is, though, at least in Italy, today is just another day full of hypocrisy and flowers and macho male strippers.

Yesterday another woman was killed by her husband.  Nothing but a small, unseen section on the last pages of a newspaper were given to her. Thousands of women have suffered violence today, and nobody has spoken about it.
All tv could say was: mimosas are beautiful flowers. Don't forget to say "I love you" to the women in your life by buying them some...even though they may bother you with their silly chatting and romantic movies, they are the most precious things we have.


Happy women's day.
