Week 8 Link: International Women’s Day

 

March 8th is Internationally Celebrated as International Women’s Day.  Most people use this day to celebrate and recognize the countless women throughout history who have been persecuted, oppressed and worst of all ignored despite their endless contributions across multiple fields. However, national treasure and satirist John Oliver uses this opportunity to address the cringe-worthy mishaps conducted by politicians and people across borders on this very day, to illuminate all the ways in which individuals somehow manage to undermine women on the one day of the year that is given to them.

Perfect entertainment for the casual misanthrope in everybody.
