Guardian – Do We Need International Women’s Day?…
Yet a day to think about what women have gained (or lost) is a good idea. So, I reflect. It is far better being a woman in 2010 than it would have been in 1909 when American socialists celebrated the first such day. By the time the United Nations adopted the idea in 1975, western women were able to terrify men with dungarees and orgasm on demand. But the pay gap in the United Kingdom remains huge (women earn about 77% of male earnings), and women’s pensions are more than a third less than men’s. But, perhaps the worst imbalance of all, women still only hold 20% of the seats in parliament.
