IWD badminton tournament

bakit kaya puro babae lang ang naglalaro sa all women badminton tournament?? 😀


iwd_4.gifon March 8, 2007, women from all over the world will celebrate the International Women’s Day 2007, but Accenture Philippines decided to celebrate it earlier with a badminton tournament over at Yonex Badminton Court…

all kinds and types of women came, not necessarily for the tournament or to vie for the trophies and medals at stake, but more so to celebrate their womenhood… there were short and tall, fat and thin women, married and singles, all kinds, really… and since i love women capturing images of people on camera [and the fact that my wife was playing], i went to celebrate with them…

beautiful women came in droves to the All Women Badminton Tournament like they just came from a Miami plastic surgery [of course, they didn’t] and played their hearts out, and when all the games have been played and all the trophies and medals awarded, they went home with smiles on their faces…

the International Women’s Day started in 1908, and since then, more and more countries are acknowledging it as an official holiday…

The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women’s and society’s thoughts about women’s equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that ‘all the battles have been won for women’ while many feminists from the 1970’s know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women’s visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think that women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men.

let us all, male and female together, celebrate March 8…

Ciao, sweetie… 8)
