International Women's Day is for Everyone

Dear Diary:

International Women's Day, celebrated March 8th, is a day to celebrate the successes of all women, but it's also a time to remember that nowhere in the world can women claim to have all the same rights and opportunities of men.

There is no denying that women are victims of violence, kidnapping and disrespect because of their gender, but it's difficult to understand how, in the workplace, women often receive 30 to 40 percent less pay than men for doing the same work.  There are many jobs where women are deemed not acceptable, or not capable of doing what a man does, even though they may have the same education.  Consequently, many women are forced to work in the service area where the pay could be below minimum wage.  Some industries, such as architecture, protective services or restaurant chefs are male dominated.

However, there has been progress to improve women's rights.  Personal actions by politicians, professionals and actors have spoken out for wage equality and equal rights for women.

Let's celebrate who we are and strive for all women to be as fortunate as we are.

Good Night for now.
