As for me, I'd like to celebrate IWD with a tribute to a very inspiring woman who's work has benefitted me greatly in recent times.

Except there is an International Men's Day, which someone has already informed HeartDisease of. That aside; I can't help but disagree with the notion of shaming a fairly reasonable question simply because of what other people somewhere in the world do.

It's not shaming, it's just answering their question. Yes, men do face certain setbacks because of their gender, but women (keep in mind, this is on an international scale we're talking about here) face a comparatively dwarfing number more. Thus it really only makes sense that International Men's Day is something that really isn't as talked about. Hell, until now I didn't know about it myself and I really didn't care.

OK, this is perhaps the ultimate rebuttal of women not getting enough representation in Hollywood. Hollywood as a modern town (est. 1886) was founded by 2 married couples.


Source: discoverhollywood.com/Publications/Discover-Hollywood/2010/Issue-Spring-2010/Whitley-Heights.a
spx

Hobart Johnstone (10/7/1847-6/3/1931) and Margaret Virginia-Whitley (2/10/1867-8/13/1951) with their 2 kids (1880s photo)

Daeida Wilcox (1861-8/7/1914)

source: her FindAGrave page.


Harvey Wilcox (1832-3/19/1891) registered the name "Hollywood" in 8/1886 with the county registry and Daeida develop it into a ranching/real estate community. It was H.J. who came up with the name. He and Margaret did more to develop the town. Compare it to a company: the Wilcoxes founded it but the Whitleys did more to make that company into what it would make it last. The movie history of Hollywood didn't start until 1910.

another noteworthy woman who changed history: Harriet Tubman


She was a former slave, and risked her life multiple times to free other slaves. she has more strength of character and more courage than most, if not all of us. she knew she could get caught and return to slavery or possibly lose her life - she didn't care. saving others was far more important than her own life.



She was born into slavery in Maryland in 1820, and successfully escaped in 1849. Yet she risked her life and freedom and returned many times to rescue both family members and other slaves from the plantation system. Tubman led hundreds to freedom in the North as the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, an elaborate secret network of safe houses organized for that purpose. She also helped the Union Army during the war, working as a spy among other roles. After the Civil War ended, Tubman dedicated her life to helping impoverished former slaves and the elderly, establishing her own Home for the Aged.

one issue i have against the modern feminists is they seem more worried about minuscule first world problems if they even deserve to be even considered a actual problem at all. facing woman then whats happening in places like the various African/middle eastern etc countries were woman usually pretty much have no rights and worse even glorify those cultures as bastions of woman's rights when couldn't be further from the true.

I should present some relevant information on Women's Day. On the US political alignment, the Feminists is one of the central groups of the Social Liberal faction that now lead the Democratic Party as shown by Hillary Clinton`s leadership. The alliance between the Feminists and the economic elites indicate that support of non-traditional women has become the majority in the elite circle of US.

In animal ecology, the female of the species seem to the more dominate and aggressive of the two sexes when the demand for infant raising is high compared to the resource available. The hyenas have a matriarchy social structure due to the huge resource demand needed for development of powerful jaws of the infants. The Ring-tailed lemur species live in a group where the female dominate and where the female defend the group's territory. The female dominance in the Ring-tailed lemurs (and for all lemurs species for that matter) is attributed to the need to secure resource for infant raising in Madagascar where resource availability is highly unpredictable. In Marmoset monkey species, the males gain reproductive flavor from the females by raising her offspring instead of securing a territory likely due to their small size and high infant growth demand.
