International Women's Day!

McDonald's, a well known fast-food chain headquartered in Illinois , United States of America celebrated, The International Women's Day on 8th March 2018 by making its logo upside down; that is making 'M' into 'W'.

behind the news

We all agree that the role of mothers in our lives is extremely important. Mothers, however, play various other roles too, a daughter, sister, daughter-in-law wife, an employee, and so on. To show respect to women, McDonald's turned its logo upside down. What will happen if you flip the letter 'M' which stands for McDonald, it will become 'W' which stands for women. Celebrating International Women's Day is wonderful, however, why such respect is shown only for one day, what about the other days. In many areas of life, women have to suffer disrespect, gender inequality, differentiation in salaries, discrimination and so on. So to oppose this, approximately 5.3 million women participated in a protest march in Spain along with major women politicians as well. The theme of the protest says, 'If we stop, the world stops'.

beyond the news

It is good that we celebrate Mother's Day and International Women's Day. But it will be great, if equal importance is given to women on rest of the days of any year. After all it is rightly said by somebody……if they stop, the world for sure might stop!
