Women’s Day Wrap Up

Interesting color choice----International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women's Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. It commemorates the struggle for women's rights. The earliest Women's Day observance was held on February 28, 1909, in New York and organized by the Socialist Party of America.International Women’s Day in all its Communist glory. With several schools in New York, Virginia and North Carolina closed today, Tumblr striking for their cleverly titled A Day Without a Woman (also known as High School for some people), and French air traffic controllers striking just because it’s a week day, Air India is celebrating the Communist throwback of Women’s Day by attempting to get the first all-female flight in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Flying from New Delhi to San Francisco last week, Air India claims that the cockpit and cabin crew for the flight were all women, along with the air traffic controllers and ground staff.

According to the airline’s Facebook post, “Air India scripted history by flying an all-women crew flight around the world. AI 174 touched down Delhi this evening adding yet another feather to Air India's cap in its constant endeavour to encourage women. The flight AI 173 had earlier taken off from IGI Airport in Delhi on 27th February to San Francisco covering a distance of around 15300 km in 15 and a half hours over the Pacific route and on the return journey from San Francisco over the Atlantic.”Air India.

Air India also “encouraged” women earlier this year by starting a female-only section to cut down on instances of in-flight molestation.

“Air India has decided to reserve seats in an entire row, namely the third row, in Economy Class on its Domestic Flights for women passengers who wish to travel alone. These special seats, which can be availed by such women passengers, will come at no extra cost.”

Of course, when you need special seating to prevent sexual assaults, how far has the female cause really come?

    A special aisle for women? How bad is it that that is thought to be necessary?
