International Womens Day

Today was International Women's Day.
Green blogger Natalie Bennett has a piece on the topic on the Guardian site.

In a piece of terrible irony the events in Denmark over the past week have seen the destruction at the hands of the state (in co-operation with a fundamentalist Christian sect)of the building in which 99 radical women from 17 countries met in August 1910 and designated March 8th International Women's Day.

Meanwhile the LM cult and friends have been at it again on Channel Four, lining up with contrarians and such lovely human beings as Thatcher's slimey henchman Nigel Lawson. "Ex" Furedi-ite Martin Durkin began the prog with saying man made global warming was a lie and the whole scientific and political consensus on climate change is made up of liars. Channel 4 offers uncritical platform to paranoid conspiracists and slanderers? Enough said.
