Women Deserve More Respect

Last Thursday, March 8th, was “International Women’s Day”.  Like many things to honor women for their accomplishments, it probably went by unnoticed by many.  While it is a national holiday in many countries, it’s not one here at home.

This year’s theme was “Empower Women – End Hunger and Poverty”.

The first national Women’s Day was observed in 1909 in the United States after a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.

Although the celebrations are different depending on the country, the focus is on respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements.

For last year’s 100th anniversary of “International Women’s Day”, “James Bond” actor Daniel Craig did an amazing public service announcement dressed as a woman to point out the inequalities between men and women.

And, in honor of all of the great women in our lives, past and present, living and dead, I’ll share a couple of pictures of my past from various charity events and shows to emphasize that it’s not easy being a woman and that I’d never want to walk a mile in their pumps.  These pictures are from 1995 and 1996.

Women, I commend you for all that you do and especially for the ones that don’t get a big “thank you” at home or at work.
