30 Days of Discrimination Towards WOMEN. Womens History Month
UPDATE April 15th is Income Tax Day. Is it OK to "attack Women on income Tax day" particularly when the FACT is that the Legislators who wrote this Tax Code were likely MEN?
When we study the past, it is to improve our present & future.
It is not enough to celebrate history for history's sake, then rest on our laurels & marvel at our accomplishments with a congratulatory pat on the back.
This is WHY we study history: to take those lessons from the past to make life better for everyone.
I have spent most of the month of March recognizing the past historic achievements of women, then tried to put it all together to encourage people to think about why this matters, how this affects our present & how to apply these lessons to our future.
Tomorrow is April 1st, "April Fool's Day." As such, I have decided to run this piece in advance on on March 31st to encourage people to think for themselves about what our culture does to WOMEN.
Here in the Houston area, it seems that the weather has gotten the advance Memorandum, with wild temperature fluctuations & while there haven't yet been any "Mother Nature" analogies, I fully well expect to begin any day now (hopefully not.)
