Why do we need to celebrate Women's Day?
Because things are changing but not everywhere. Too many girls and women need to fight against people who want to make them be silent.
It is also about Malala's rights and the right of girls who want to go to school and believe in education for women.
Literature and women writers
In Literature, I love thinking of the many voices of women and writers who have written about them: V. Woolf and others like Dorothy Richardson who wrote about women and changed the way we write now. It was Stream of Consciousness but also the discovery of the attitude of women which was different from their husbands, fathers and brothers.
When dealing with the XX century in Literature I like reading about V. Woolf's ideas: I like her great text- " A Room of One's Own"- her voice is still talking to us and helps us think about the world and how women are treated.
