'Peter and Jane and Mummy Too' writes about International Women's Day.
Random quote (it's all good):

Women’s rights have come so far in just the last 100 years, but despite that, predictions suggest that the gender gap won’t fully close until 2186 (World Economic Forum). So, true equality may possibly not exist until our granddaughters’ granddaughters’ granddaughters’ time. That’s why the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is ‘Be Bold For Change’, because there is still so much more to change, and 169 years is too long to wait!

Good luck!!

Penelope Trunk: Grit is overrated; the hardest worker never wins
Especially this part:

I have thought for a long time that all the time management gurus are men because men have huge chunks of time uninterrupted by children. And the workplace is organized for time productivity, whereas the home is organized in a non-linear way that segments time into lots of small chunks interrupted by emergencies/breakdowns/crying etc. The workplace is about using time to get money. The home is about using time to get a nap.

Brigid Schulte talks about women’s time as being like confetti; little chunks float by in an unorganized way and you take them as you can. There’s no grit here; it’s just trying to stay ahead of the next problem. There is no flow because dinner would burn. There is no engagement because cumulative sleep deprivation of raising kids shifts focus to just keeping them alive.

ETA: Another Penelope Trunk, since I'm here:

Feminism fails because women lie to each other about work. Oh, and go Cubs!
But what is a surprise is that she has her own business, Two Penny Blue. I clicked the About section.

And I am SO INCREDIBLY BLOWN AWAY BY THE CRAP SHE DISHES OUT ON HER SITE THAT I’M PRINTING IT ALL HERE. RIGHT NOW.

NO. WAIT. I’M GOING TO ANNOTATE IT.

The Women’s March has now reached as far as Antarctica. (Really.)
There are now sister marches in 60 countries on seven continents.

Women's March will send message to Trump: Wendy Sherman
A day after Donald Trump is inaugurated, thousands of women will descend on Washington for a march — a time-honored tribute to our constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly. I have been surprised, however, by the number of women who have asked, “What for?”

And Sady Doyle's two cents:

Don't Call the Women's March Messy. It's a Movement
