Today is women's day, and In my country (spain) you can skip school as a form of protest. So I did and at 12am I went to a student march to promote equality. I've gone to at least a handfull of protests, but this one made me feel inmensley proud. For the couple of hours I spent there, I was overwellmed with this sense of pride by seeing all this young girls amd women, men and guys all together to fight for our future. It made me tear up, and gave me the hope to think we are getting there, very slowly, but getting there . And hopefully, one day, my daughters or grandaughters will be able to do whatever they want without having to think about their gender.

I would have thought Spain's economy had more to do with women not being able to do/be what they want then what Spanish men "allow" women to do.
But I understand the love of feeling like you are doing something wonderful and righteous and the sense of wonder and awe you must feel in seeing so many others doing it as well.
I just think this is all unnecessary and embarrassing. I do not know how it is Spain but in America women have already won the fight of equality quite a long time ago. Those were fighters.
To see it now, tt is all a bit ridiculous and annoying and quite frankly, it has taken women backwards in the fight for equality. In America, they want to be special not equal.
It is dumb, boring and wrong. Three things I hate in a good idea. :)
That´s just stupid. Our generation of women can do whatever we like. In the western world, that is. What about muslim women, who are not allowed to even leave their house on their own, can´t travel, choose their profession etc. How are your skipping school going to help them?
