Today is International Women’s Day. I seriously did not know there was such a day and I’m a woman. 35 years old and I never had a clue there was a day to honor my sex/gender whatever you want to call it. I’m not interested in the facts, the why’s, the how longs or why it’s just one single day, I’m just happy to be in alive in a time that on this appreciating day a movie like Captain Marvel came out with the idea of representing women on their day.
I haven’t seen it, but I don’t need to in order to tell you that it’s a fantastic movie. Well done. Great story line, amazing actors/actresses. Simply from the reactions of others I know that this was a movie that came at the right time. Amongst all the movements right now, like Me Too and Times Up, this is the perfect addition to support those things.
I am excited to see it myself. I have three children, as most of you know, and I am considering dragging my mother, who doesn’t normally “do” comic book movies (Although, she did have tons of questions for me when I took her to see Captain America: Civil War 😉 😉) and my oldest daughter (7 years) to go see it together. Three generations watching a movie that has us in mind. This is the movie to our “Fight Song” I believe. 😂
This is NOT what I had planned for today’s post but it’s what came to mind when I sat down to type it out. Maybe I will make another one later today, but for now, this is perfect. Guys, you see a woman on the streeet, smile! Don’t be weird about it! Just say “good morning” and smile. The simple gesture can make someone’s day sometimes. And women, when you pass each other on the street, give a high-five 🙌🏻! It’s not weird. It might feel awkward but celebrate yourselves today!
Our fight to be equal is far from over, I don’t know if it ever will be, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the accomplishments we’ve made so far. The right to vote, the right to divorce (at least in the US), the right to own property, the right to join the military, I know there are more but I just can’t think of them right now. I’ve only have one cup of coffee, so forgive me. But those are pretty big ones so woot for the memory bank!
Go out! Have a fantastic day and be kind to one another!
P.S. No spoilers about Captain Marvel please! 😉
