International Women’s Day

March 8, 2014 | Karin

Today marks International Women’s Day. I’m not exactly sure what we are supposed to be doing on this day. There is a website for International Women’s Day, which includes a list of events, news and then features some issues, such as the initiative to get more women in sciences. In NeW, we celebrate the achievements of women in the U.S. and abroad. Democrats used the idea of a “War on Women” as a central campaign theme in the 2012 President election and it looks like that will be a key messaging strategy in the midterms. It would be nice if we could use the energy that goes into that to actually figure out a way to help women across the globe.There is still a lot of room for the advancement of women’s rights abroad. Remember Malala Yousafzai? She is the young Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban on her way home from school. She almost died just trying to get an education. Stories like that of Malala Yousafzai remind us of the real challenges women face around the world. I hope her story also gives those who promote the “War on Women” rhetoric some context.

It was freshman year, and I had just “outed” myself as a conservative for the first time at college. “[Since] I ‘came out’ as a conservative,...
