Tomorrow, 8 March, is International Women's Day. The origins of the day are, believe it or not, in the socialist and trade union movement, and it used to be called International Working Women's Day.
Most, almost all, women work in some capacity or other, but it is still useful to remember the origins. All appearances to the contrary, it is not, or shouldn't be, International Careerist Women's Day, International Bourgeois Feminist Women's Day or even, shudder, International Radical Feminist Women's Day.
As I might be running around tomorrow taking photos at various events marking IWD, I thought I would post my Friday joke (a rare event) a day early. It isn't about feminism, but if you have been following Barnet local politics lately you will know what it is about.
