International Women's Day

I noticed one issue with the International women's Day.That they were short of issues after all.And there was lack of initiative.People talk of gender discrimination in offices.My belief is that this thing is more or less being phased out naturally and diversity is given preference and merit rules in a highly professional work place.But then the media focussed on such aspects as well aspect of domestic violence and female foeticide.A major component was missing.The rural women and women from slums.Day in and out I see women working hard,be it walking miles and carrying water or crossing heights and carrying loads of cements for the nearby uder-construction buliding.They do build lives and they don't live happy lives.My point is how much weightage do they get.The blue collar moms !!!
