Today we celebrate International Women’s Day, and the so-wrongly-called-“weaker sex” it’s honoring their gender by protesting instead of celebrating. Power is this year’s theme because millions of women worldwide are expected to march to pressure the government to fully acknowledge and respect their rights.
