Girls' day out

Today is International Women's Day. Show your appreciation. Hug a woman. (With her permission, of course.)

I will confess that, until I saw the logo on Google today while looking up something or other, I did not know that today was International Women's Day. In fact, I would go as far as to say that I did not know there was an International Women's Day. I have known women pretty much all my life — and in several nations, I hasten to add — and not one of them had mentioned this observance to me before.

Was it supposed to be a secret? Is this what women are covertly planning when they all get up and go to the washroom together? Is there something I'm supposed to be doing today to demonstrate that I, although certifiably not a woman, am down with the sisters? Is there an appropriate International Women's Day gift? (Perhaps a donation to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation — an organization that I, as the husband of a breast cancer survivor, heartily endorse — would be in order.)

If you, as I, wonder what the whole business is about (though I presume that our female readers probably know this already, having been in on the planning), there's a detailed explanation at Wikipedia.

Whatever the case, today, we at SSTOL salute women everywhere. Many — indeed, most — of our favorite people are women. And we love you all.

You go, girls. We hear you roar.
