In the Name of Womanhood and Humanity...

"What is now widely viewed as a sentimental tribute to family -- Mother's Day -- was originally a call for women to wage a general strike to end war."

Wow... very interesting! And I must say that I like the original idea for the day a lot!

I read that Mother's Day was actually started by a grumpy lady who never had children herself, and who later said she detested all the greeting cards and commercialism of it. Pretty ironic.

I sent flowers to my mom. So it's commercial. It makes her happy.

Lysistrata Day?
And remember "Another Mother for Peace"?
Guess it didn't work.
