Growing up, I remember hearing “women’s libbers” decry the unequal status of women in America. To me, it rang hollow. Weren’t women fully equal to men? Women attended college, had careers if they chose, voted. Sure, maybe when International Women’s Day was founded a hundred years ago, women hadn’t had all the same opportunities, but that has changed. Women have all the same rights and opportunities as men. Right?
Which begs the question: Do we even need an International Women’s Day anymore?
