I thought I’d already missed International Women’s Day, but turns out it’s today! I first heard about the existence of this day in Spain, from my super-feminist Spanish Women’s Studies teacher, who made us hold hands in a circle and talked about how all women have goddesses inside them or some such. A little weird, but celebrating women = still a great idea!
