Come on, Lilly Ledbetter passed! Over tons of objections from Republicans, but it still passed!

Perhaps the writers of the article don't like mandatory and medically unnecessary vaginal wand insertion before a medical procedure?

Or the fact the ERA still hasn't passed?

I believe it was just reintroduced. Again.

From Wiki :

On 2013 International Women's Day, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) draw attention to the plight of women in prison. All over the world, women and girls living behind bars often face particular hardship in terms of protection, privacy and access to basic services, including health care.

Women's prisons this year...

... Bow-chicka-bow-wow...

Okay, I'll celebrate Women's Day by watching Caged Heat tonight.

Come on, silly, everyone knows that women really just want more tax cuts for the rich which will increase labor demand, so they can get a second job and be successful.

How are they supposed to cook dinner, have more kids and clean the house? Those tax cuts are so their husbands can get that second job. Traditional marriage is important.

It's easy to look like you are respecting a woman when she is covered up behind a big coat, forcing you to make eye contact.

Wife lived in Iceland while a Navy brat, I can see why Icelandic women are seen as sex toys.  Iceland seemed to have made its influence on her.

For a gender seemingly insistent on equality, women sure do expect others to pay a lot of bills for them.

And do you know what's super crazy?! They don't even have a majority in the Congress, they can just barely vote as of like yesterday, and not once, ever has there been a woman president! They are even still doing housework and taking care of their children in this backwards, retarded, stupid ass country! 

I just want a world where women are exactly like men in every single way. Every. Single. Way.

FTFA:

4. Canada
In Canada, a third of the federally appointed judges are female, and women make up 25 percent of parliament. Depending on how long they've been employed, new moms can take anywhere from 17 to 52 weeks of maternity leave without losing their job or getting a pay cut. A third of the country's ministers are women, and women make up 25 percent of parliament. Universal health care and easy access to education help make Canada once of the best countries for women.

I'd guess every country except for the five that did.

Now, to guess the five that did.  I'm thinking progressive societies, with high GINI coefficient.  Scandinavia?

And maybe Canada.

*checks list*

Shocking.

Okay, ONE out of five countries on the list has a population greater than that of a decent sized urban county in the US. So?

More telling is that in every one of those countries "successful women" are figure heads. They earn less than men, spend more time on domestic chores than men, and in general their success is the result of social experiments, not actual achievement.

IOW, TFA is bullshiat.
