What is today?

A day that will be forgotten tomorrow.

And that's why I won't say "Happy intenational women's day", but "Happy fighting for women's rights".
As long as women are being abused, beaten and killed, as long as they are paid less than men for the same jobs, as long as they are being put into the kitchens to be mothers and wives only, as long as they are being discouraged to seek education and career, we need to fight for our rights.
When we become truly equal with men, then, and only then, we won't need "international women's day" any more.

I don't want flowers; I want to be equal. I want my rights.
