Standing up for the Ladies!

Firstly Happy International Women’s Day to all the lovely ladies out there.

 

My mother in law sent me this link today and I loved it so much that I wanted to share it all with you.

 

The useless men in my office didn’t even bother to be nice to us even today so I took the initiative to put up a small notice on the front door that read;

“IT’S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY TODAY!!!

PLEASE ENTER ONLY IF YOU HAVE ONE OF THE

FOLLOWING ITEMS FOR THE SIX LADIES ON THIS FLOOR.

 

ACCEPTABLE ITEMS INCLUDE;

1. CHOCOLATE FUDGE FROM CONTINENTAL HOTEL

2. BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE FROM COFFEE BEAN & TEA LEAF

 

Anyway on a more serious note, there are very pressing issues that need to be raised on days such as this. Drama Queen took the initiative of drawing our attention to http://themadcatwoman.blogspot.com/2011/02/i-decided-to-like-women.html. I feel so strongly about violence towards women. I feel it’s quite sick to think that the people you love can commit such acts and to think every 3 in 5 women are subject to such abuse. I’m sorry to say this but Sri Lanka isn’t paradise at all. Far from it!!

 

Whatever said and done it’s the children that suffer in the end! 😦

So here’s hoping that more women get the courage to speak up about crimes that take place at home and know that there are people out there to stand by them. Lets hope they do it for their children if not for themselves.
