THE FORGOTTEN FEMALE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

International Women's Day. What genius started the grand tradition of giving suppressed groups of people a day in patronising mollification? It is the most insubstantial of thrown bones- a shard of femur- this paltry day, in which people say, 'It's IWD' and someone else responds, 'Really? Huh. How about that' and things carry on exactly as before.

Like being given a gift certificate saying you own a star, you know it doesn't really belong to you.

If you want that star to really be yours, you are gonna have to fly there and put down a fuck-off flag and an intergalactic security system.

We don't need a day, we need a revolution! Let's take the whole fucking year, bitches.president4

Vive la résistance!

Bisou,
