Happy Woman's Day

Today, March 8, is International Woman's Day. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, but its origins are too socialist for the USA to take part. In any case, it has become as commercialized, kitchy and despised as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day are in America, with dorks buying the red carnations to their otherwise ignored and despised wives on this day.

Instead of carnations, here are some good quotes by and about women (hat tip: Mom):
