So there I stood among hundreds of women celebrating one day out of the 365. Although I think every day should be women’s day I was disappointed in the male turnout for this event. I thought there would be at least a dozen men or so. It’s like in my Islam class, there should be more non-Muslims them Muslims so they can learn about the religion and understand it a bit better. Same as my women’s class, there is only a few maybe just three members of the male gender making an effort to learn about equality between BOTH sexes.

The Celebration held at Sagan Banquet Hall was beautifully organized with plenty of things to keep the crowd entertained / distracted like different stalls promoting different centers, massage stations, fortune tellers, jewelry vendors and an aroma therapy stall. I found the introduction speech to be very moving and full of passion and energy. My favorite part of the evening had to be the comedy. I’m a big fan of comedy and this act was pretty darn good.

I was able to meet some old friends and meet up with two of my class mates. It was a very fun night.

Happy International Women’s Day
