Women’s Day – March 7

China celebrates International Women’s Day. If it falls on a work day, all of the women get half of the day off. This year, it was Sunday, so we all got to choose a gift instead. The choices: a soybean milk maker (like a soybean juicer), blender, sheets, pot, or gift basket with shampoo, toothpaste, etc.

Last year, all of the women went to the hospital to get their annual checkup. (I got my hair cut that morning instead.) I think I prefer the gift!

  1. This is blatant sexual discrimination. I couldn’t believe it the first time I was here and saw half the office walk out at lunch time simply because they lacking the Y chromosome! Bah, humbug!

  2. Oh Woai, you are just jealous. You know blatant sexual discrimination happens all of the time here. So we can have half of a day in our favor, can’t we?

    I am sure you just wanted the soybean juicer anyway.
