Women’s Day

Today 8th March is known as International Women’s Day. What started out as a political movement by women in the last century to promote equality, has in modern times evolved to a day for men to show love and appreciation for the fair ladies.

Ironically, March 8 in Chinese is written as 三八, numeral digit for 3 and 8, happens to be a Chinese slang to describe women who are rowdy, behave inappropriately or say things that are disgraceful and embarrassing. Variations of 三八 includes 死三八, 臭三八,三八婆 which basically means the same thing. It is a negative phrase to address a woman so it is strongly recommended to avoid using it on your female boss. Though many times, friends use 三八 to tease their female friends.

There are various stories as to the origin of the phrase and it could be mere coincidence it shares uncanny similarities with Women’s Day. ^^;

Lastly, had a hard time choosing which pic to post for this topic so decided to use the lovely Erika Toda. She’s a fine beautiful young woman in my book so she deserves to be appreciated. ^^;
