Thoughts on IWD2019 / mentions of crimes done to women 

International Women's Rights Day is not "happy".

Women all over the world die, suffer, are harassed, mutilated, raped, denied equal chances, ill-treated, demeaned, mocked just because they are not cisgender men.

the "Happy women's day!" I see everywhere remind me of all the issues that are still here. And they are no reason to be jolly. It's not our "party-day", it's a day to remember that the fight is far from being over yet.

Also, we are talking about the fight for equal rights for ALL women. Be them fat, thin, able-bodied, sick, mom, unemployed, cisgender, trans, queer, feminine, muscular, wearing a headscarf, black, single, married, poor... ALL of them. Make sure your feminism doesn't forget / ostracize any.
