    Those Ruskies really go to town. It’s a 3 day celebration. The men have to bring gifts, all the women got a red rose. Most of the men I spoke to about it couldn’t wait for it to be over....

    Should this have been named 'World Women's day' ?

    Not every women can travel abroad.

  13. New York Times is making up a little of the gap in recognising women with 15 obituaries of women who they neglected at the time of their deaths. Some are shocking, like Sylvia Plath, Charlotte Bronté and - now I have read about her - Ida B. Wells. Some make sense - probably no one understood the importance of Ada Lovelace and Henrietta Lacks when they died. That's what I've got from a cursory glance.

    Lots more to read!
