The much celebrated Women's Day!

No thank you !
We don't need a 'Women's Day'!
We don't want a favor- 'Ladies first' !
We don't want a complement of 'fairer gender' !
No Thankyou Mr P. Chidambaram! We don't want women exclusive banks!
Don't absolve yourself from the responsibility of committing safety, law and order to control the wide/wild spread chauvinism, rage, dopamine overdrive of unfairer gender so that women en masse can feel like normal human beings and exercise their fundamental rights- take birth and die naturally, grow, get education, employment of their choice and live life with pride , dignity and equality....all 365 days!

    Mar 9 2013: who is the "we" here? i know a lot of women that are ready to take advantage of their gender, and even demand special treatment in a wide variety of situations. like for example "you can't talk like that to a woman". they say "we" women like to get attention, compliments, etc.

    "we" are very different. so i suggest respect for personal freedom, as opposed to doing the "right" thing.
    • Mar 9 2013: Yes, in some aspects, women are different from men for sure. But in general, we are the same under law. If they do wrong thing, I am sure that they will be tried like men. But, as you know right now, women in many part of the world still be treated like hell under the power of men without any protection from police, law...In those countries, they women even accept their such tragic situation for their destiny of a woman!
