My International Womens Day tweets, collected #IWD

(On March 8th, International Womens Day, at about 10 minutes to midnight I realized that although I had tweeted all day about womens' rights issues, I hadn't said anything personal about women. So I ran off these 15 tweets, and have collected them here so they'll be in one place.)

Well it's still International Womens Day, I should say a few words about women.

I don't understand women, & I wouldn't want to be one.

But they are the central force in the human race.

They are what keeps it together, they are the primary teachers.

They are transmitters of values, for good or for evil.

They are magical people, and they represent the life force.

Any man who would lay hands on a woman is not a man.

Women need to stick up for other women, and for kids, and for their menfolk too.

I don't get them... but I sure like them... especially those that stick up for something.

And don't let go.

Women like Eleanor Roosevelt, and Barbara Jordan, and Shirley Chisholm.

Women like Sojourner Truth, and Bella Abzug, and our @joancbaez

So my hat's off to women, especially to those who refuse to sit in the back of the bus.

On International Womens Day I just want to say...

thank you ladies for all you do and all you will do to make the world a better place
