Good Day to all!

Although there are not many active female participants in this venue, I still think it is important to advise everyone of this very important day for women.

International Women's Day (IWD) is the universal day that connects all women around the world and inspires them to achieve their full potential. IWD 2006
launches another year of working progressively for women's equality worldwide. It is an important day around the world because the collective power of women
is witnessed by millions, and the brave achievements of women past, present and future are respectfully honored. International Women's Day 2006 will
be celebrated globally on Wednesday, March 8th. Congratulations to all women on this very memorable day.

It seems I'm becoming very very mysanthropic... I didn't even realized today was March 8th.

Hope you all had a good day and all that.

Women look at flowers in downtown Sarajevo on Wednesday, March 8, 2006. Bosnian men traditionally buy flowers for their female relatives, friends, and colleagues to mark International Women's Day, which has been celebrated in all republics of the former Yugoslavia for decades.

Happy Women's Day All!

The U.S. is perhaps the only country that does not recognize International Women's Day as an official holiday

Anyways, happy March 8th!

تجمع زنان در پارک دانشجو
به مناسبت روز جهانی زن، 8 مارس

تجمع در حدود ساعت 4 آغاز شد، زنان در سنین مختلف با شعارهایی در دست که می‌بینید 48; ابتدا در سکوت... و بعد از چند دقیقه بطور هماهنگ شروع به خواندن سرود جنبش زنان کردند...
در همان زمان ماشین نیروی انتظامی به میان جمعیت آمد و از پشت بلندگو اعلام کرد که این تجمع غیر‌قانو 06;ی است و متفرق شود...
و در دقایق بعدی با حمله نیروهای انتظامی، ضد شورش، همراه با باتوم برقی و ... تجمع پایان یافت... با نهایت لطف هرکسی را که توانستند مضروب کردند، حت&a mp;# 1740; خانم سیمین بهبهانی را با سن بالا در حالی که می‌دانست 06;د کیست زدند!

محض اطلاع نیروی انتظامی

طبق اصل ۲۷ قانون اساسی جمهوری اسلامی

تشکیل اجتماعات و راه‏پیما 40;ی‏ها، بدون حمل سلاح، به شرط آن که مخل به مبانی اسلام نباشد آزاد است.

من این وسط تفنگ ندیدم! اگر شما دیدین من رو هم خبر کنین!

For the Record: Women’s Rights Activists Were Beaten on 2006 International Women’s Day in Iran

A group of about 130 women’s rights activists who gathered in Deneshjoo Park in central Tehran to celebrate International Women’s Day were brutally beaten by the police. As soon as the program started with distributing some brochures and chanting Iran’s women’s movement song, the police informed the attendants that their gathering is illegal and they should leave the premises. Then the police started beating men and women present in Daneshjoo Park and the program was ended. Simin Behbahani, the Iranian elderly famous poet was among the people who have been beaten.

According to Atricle 27 of Islamic Republic of Iran’s Constitution, public gatherings and marches may be freely held, provided arms are not carried and that they are not detrimental to the fundamental principles of Islam.

I don't know it's true or not, I didn't hear about it

Edit: No, It seems True

Land of Aryan.....I am speechless! These women are conducting a peaceful gathering and they are getting beaten for it? I thought believers of Islam respected their women!

Women of Iran.....keep fighting for your equal rights.   

I am so proud of the women shown in these photos for publicly joining together. Those are strong women and I applaud them!

fact is Iranian women have more freedom than many other Islamic country,
but in Islam Women rights = 1/2 men
in court 3 female witness = 1man &......

Also this Gov. leaded by khomeini that
when Shah let women to Vote in election, khomeini was against it

Hi, (in response to Emperor Barbarossa's post above)

Apparently there is an 'International Men's day' held on November 19 in many places. Here is a website: International Men's Day global website


Speaking on behalf of UNESCO, [about International Men's Day] Ms. Ingeborg Breines, Director of Women and Culture of Peace said, “This is an excellent idea and would give some gender balance.”


I never thought of it like that, as imbalance. But I guess to have one gender only listened to and massively funded for health and family etc., and only one gender celebrated with a special day is I guess exactly what Ms. Breines implies, imbalance. Its not all about who is president or CEO (ie. men), but about who gets thier health and family connections empowered (women), and who is disempowered in those domains (men).

There is an old question which askes 'Why is there no International Men's Day', to which is answered- "Because every other day is international men's day!".  Personally I don't buy this because the funding of health for men, and recognition of thier potential role as nurturers of children within the family is roundly dismissed in favour of sterotyping all males.

I guess the question now reads "Why is there now an International Men's Day", to which could be answered, "because on no other day are suicides and health needs and family issues recognized for men and boys".

Wow, that is very interesting. I was sort of joking in my post, but now I am intrigued that there is seriously an International Men's Day.

Both are pointless. The only real benefit that could come from international women's day is that it would act as a pressure point for women's struggles for rights all over the world (Contrary to the views of feminists, women in the USA and Europe are not persecuted. When people claim that sort of nonsense they only demean the cause of women in countries were they ARE persecuted)

International Men's day hopefully will shrivel and die in the buraucratic malaise that conceived of it.
