    I am on the equality/diversity committee at work. My mother was a lawyer for the US Justice Department that took them to court twice for sex discrimination and harassment, winning both times (interesting, given that they questioned her skills as an attorney). Anyways, I have two daughters and I'd like to think that I had observed progress in regard to gender equality in my life time. I think I have, but I'd say we're only about a quarter of the way there....

    The older I get, the more I appreciate and respect women.

    Thanks for remembering their day.

    Does it? If it measured equality shouldn't it be possible to see in which countries do women do better than men?

    Rwanda? But that's just their Parliament, not the entire country.

    And Amazons are fiction, and a river, not a country. ;)

    If the Amazons existed as a country would they be green or orange on the map?
