Many of you have asked why no posts lately–the answer is that the blog and I are taking a little break (well maybe more than a little) so that I can focus on some other writing projects. In the meantime, The Facebook page and Twitter feed are going strong–please check them out!
Yesterday InternationalWomensDay.com put out a call on Facebook asking for suggestions for the 2013 theme for International Women’s Day. The unmitigated gall of the people who run this site never ceases to amaze me. This is a commercially run site that represents no one but itself. Here is screenshot of the call:
A United Nations theme is also supported? Who on earth gave these people the right to suggest that a corporate run site has a higher authority to pick a theme. International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate women’s achievements and rededicate ourselves to fighting for women’s rights, not a day for corporate cause branding. I’ve written about this now more times than I can count, this is just the latest offense. It is time to tell the people who run this site and their corporate sponsors to sod off and quit acting like they own International Women’s Day.
