20 Stories Showing The Continued Fight For Equality – For International Women’s Day!

| Right | March 8, 2021

Dear readers,

Today is International Women’s Day! Celebrated since 1911, this is a day to honor the achievements of women throughout history and to renew our efforts to push even closer to equality.

Sure, women can vote and own property now, but the female sex is still frequently used as a casual insult, and there are still people who seem to think women are incapable of handling such complicated tasks as changing tires, moving heavy boxes, or selling video games.

We’ve certainly come a long way toward gender equality as a society, but as this roundup of 20 stories from our archives proves, we’ve got quite a distance still to go.

“Treats” Women Differently – Just because you’re talking about a dog it doesn’t mean it isn’t sexist.

Estimate That He’s Been Waiting Since The Fifties – If I never read or hear the phrase “little lady” again, it’ll be too soon.

Time To Trample His Misogyny – Hits from the comments: “But the guy was right: it’s not fair that the woman who paid to play has to listen to this moron complain for no good reason.”

Made With Barley, Hops, And Gender Stereotypes – “None of our beer is sexist, madam…” is ICONIC.

Misogynixed – Wait, how do you drive? Don’t your boobs get in the way?

Time To Start Stereo-Typing Up Your Resignation – What a weird double-whammy of sexism and racism!

Like Comic Book Guy, Except Much Prettier – Certain Not Always Working subjects notwithstanding, why would they hire someone who didn’t know what they were doing?

You’d Think He Was Allergic To Pink – Hits from the comments: “Oh, don’t you understand, OP? If that one-year-old sees a pink dinosaur on him, he will immediately decide that he likes men and will become a flaming gay.”
