Just One Day, Huh?

Posted by Dirck on 8 March, 2019

Like so many of these days, I wonder at the notion of a single day of attention being thought of as sufficient to address past years of studious neglect, as well as the ill use that gets dished out every other day of the year. But, it’s what we have to work with, and International Woman’s Day is at least one day when (perhaps) more people pay attention to the issues at hand.

So, for today’s film, a blast from the past in a couple of ways– the film not fresh, and it looks at a time that was even more blinkered in its approach to the rights and abilities of women than our own sadly unreformed era.

Perhaps some will, like a post-ghosts Scrooge, take today’s observances as a cue to keep the spirit of the day in their hearts through the whole round of the year.

Today’s pen: Pelikan 140
Today’s ink: Herbin Vert Empire
