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.
