I got caught up in International Women’s Day.
I tried to avoid the anti-female rhetoric a great number of men posting on social media and talking in the streets of this country care to engage in.
Tried to focus on my female positive and feminist husband
and the cider he brought home for me to share with him along with a bunch of flowers and my favourite coffee,
In a show of solidarity with me on this day when men take great pride in attacking.
More simply just a man bringing his wife flowers to make her smile.
I deliberately held back posting this until the day here had officially passed.
To those men:
“Feliz Dia da Costela do Homem*”( Happy day of the rib of man)
It doesn’t make you a “Homem Tradicional”( Traditional Man)
It makes you a dinosaur
To a specific man, I know
You have a daughter,
To all my sisters around the world
*Reference to the biblical story of Eve being made from Adam’s rib
