It’s International Women’s Day, okay so ladies now let’s get in formation. In 1980, Joan Jett said in her hit single Bad Reputation, “You’re living in the past, it’s a new generation. A girl can do what she wants to do and that’s what I’m gonna do.” Thirty six years later the lyrics are truer than ever. Welcome a new generation of girls who run the world. Thanks Beyoncé. A generation of boss ass bitches. As Nicki Minaj would say, “Cause we dope girls we flawless, we the poster girls for all this.” By “all this” we mean the theme of International Women’s Day – “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality.” Think women’s liberationists movement in the late 1960s in Australia. The liberating boss ladies who got the ball rolling.  So thank you, ladies, for revolutionising the idea of feminism and encouraging equality. Bring on Planet 2030. But really, we’ll achieve this before then. Never underestimate a woman. In the words of Helen Reddy, “I am woman, hear me roar.”
