happy women’s day!
Thomas came into my office this morning with a cheerful “Congratulations!” I love the Norwegian tradition of congratulating each other on the eighth of March.
It’s only just over a hundred years since the first women were allowed to vote. Spend a few minutes today thinking of our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and great great grandmothers who fought so hard for suffrage, equal pay and equal rights. Women are still paid less than men, and if you’re born a woman, you’re a lot less likely than your brother to have influence in politics or industry, but at least we’re theoretically equal now. In theory, we can do anything.
