A post on Antioch's intranet by Judith Kintner, who runs the gym:
Yep, it's today. Check out some web sites (World Vision is good). Call your Mom if you have a mom, or your Grandma, or your fifth grade teacher. It's a good day to remember that worldwide, women are still oppressed, discriminated against, and disproportionately economically disadvantaged.
It would be really cool if all of us women people today took a minute to acknowledge what we have, or plan to, overcome--for ourselves or for others-- to acknowledge what it's taken for older women to be where they are, doing what they're doing.
Remember: women are dying in disproportionately high numbers due to smoking related ilnesses--maybe skip a few cigarettes today.
Remember: 30 years ago we weren't allowed to play lots of sports, we weren't allowed to play with the boys, and a lot of now-grey-haired women made sure that changed. Maybe come over to the gym and work out, or play basketball or volleyball at noon. Come play or watch rugby this afternoon.
