One writes

An immensely strong message that I feel and recognise, given by Eduardo Galeano, 1978:

The women’s day

Every day is women’s day, but today we get to be reminded of that!

I believe that women are strong, enduring and often wiser than men.

Special thanks and best wishes to my mom, my sister, my grandmothers and my dear better half.
