International Womens Day & why we need Feminism

Today is International Womens Day, theme this year is A Promise is a Promise: Time for Action to End Violence Against Women. It’s to  highlight the hardships, unequal treatment, unnecessary suffering and violence against women in all parts of the worlds simply because we are women It’s also a day to highlight & celebrate the achievements , quality, strength, respect & the deserved equal rights of women everywhere.

Then today I see this ad in my local Northside People paper. I just looked at it in disgust and shock!! Is it really 2013 or are we back to the 1920’s when women were to be seen and not heard and it was practically forced for you to give up your job when you got married?
