All above is true, I started with the HOMEMAKER who does it all, raises kids, cleans, cooks, gardens, shops, looks after pets (in most cases) etc.. and gets nothing, not even a thank you from society let alone most husbands. Many women do this as well as hold down jobs.
There is still a misconception that men come home and can rest up, put your dirty shoes up and take a fucken break. When does a 'housewifes' day end?
Long after the kids are cleaned up and in bed.
This article covers it.. some:
How about the fact that we send our girls to school and they are getting abused by fellow students who don't seem to have any serious repercussions for their actions?
Canada is doing better now with having more women in political power, thank you Justin.
So No, I'm not 'celebrating'.. don't wish me a 'Happy International women's day!'
Instead JUST recognize the problems still existing and change them.
I have young women I worry about!!
Don't celebrate them please.. recognize them for what & who they are and the shit they constantly have to deal with... Then HELP. ONE way- Don't contribute to it! THINK.
Ending on a positive note.. our son made a delicious pizza on the BBQ last night for all of us, Including getting all the fresh ingredients... I appreciate not having to cook - all the time, but a meal made by our son is always most appreciated and loved.
XOX *** I send out these 'kisses and Hug' for anyone who things they need them! Free!
<>< I have faith in Jesus.. my own little way to say ' Thank you'.
It's o.k. if you don't. Do what ever helps your heart.
