Apparently it is “International Women’s History Month“. Because, you know, regular history has, like, men in it. And anything with men included is by definition oppressive to womyn. Speaking of, why isn’t it “International Women’s Herstory Month”? Hmm? What’s that? Because that would be stupid? But isn’t… never mind.
The point is, I found it amusing and sad that one of the quotations I received in an e-mail noting this month-long celebration was as follows:
“Society as a whole benefits benefits immeasurably from a climate in which all persons, regardless of race or gender, may have the opportunity to earn respect, responsibility, advancement and renumeration based on ability.”
Sandra Day O’Connor 1930-
Really? “Renumeration”? Sure she didn’t say “remuneration”? Because that would make a lot more sense.
