I have no dress except the one I wear every day. If you are going to be kind enough to give me one, please let it be practical and dark so that I can put it on afterwards to go to the laboratory.
International women’s day
Today it’s the annual international women’s day. Some might say that having this day is pointless in today’s evolved society where men and women are treated as equal. I have something to say about why it’s important to still have this day and still fight for women’s rights.
After starting university I started to see a shocking amount of sexism. Women that tried to get into the Student Union got scribbles over their flyers and facebook comments on their pages saying that women can’t be leaders etc.
Several places around the university posters about rape, saying “don’t be that guy” had crosses over “don’t”
Women still have to face this every day. Women always hear that they shouldn’t be wearing certain clothes if they don’t want to be raped.
This is only a small part of why feminism and women’s right are still important today and is why several people, both men and women, walk in parades on the international women’s day.
