why  women ?  -cynical but true

This morning a smart journalist called Emily Moati in “Haaretz “writes about what we were meant to celebrate on international women day;

As Bob Dylan sings

“she aches just like a woman but she breaks just like a little girl”

What are we celebrating?

-Women earn on the average less than men.

-90%of violence is towards women.

-Women magazines promote painful  diets so we can weigh like ten year olds.

-In the media in Israel the man may age while women are expected to look amazing.

-A working mother has to pay a great portion of her pay for childcare.

-More men are voted into the parliament. 

And so let us not wonder why women are still seen as a minority while we really are only playing  the minor role. .

Good morning and let us learn from the native Americans who call women 

“life givers”and celebrate them in every way by empowering and being empowered by them.
