Controversial Thoughts on International Woman’s Day
As a woman and business owner, I am grateful that there is recognition for all that women do and contribute. What I don’t understand is why I am hearing of public school’s closing to honor this day? Doesn’t the closing put mothers in a tough situation when having to figure out child care on a day they need to go to work? How does the closing of schools help or honor women in any way, shape, or form? Is this suggesting that education is the dominant profession for women? Isn’t this stereotyping, demeaning and segregating to women? Instead of a “strike”, I think a more appreciative gesture would be a bonus or raise, don’t you think?
On that note, can we have an international lawyer’s day so I can close my business too?
