Regarding your post: "There's no need for an international women's day, really. We live in a world where men and women receive equal treatment, so a special day for making one specific gender is bigoted."
In the US we have laws against gender inequality but people still treat women as objects. We do not live in a world of equality. Still today more women than men are bought and sold. You can even be forced to marry your abuser or to stay with them. And if you think they can escape, where would they go? In Saudia Arabia women can't drive cars! Many women around the world are told what to wear, they can't speak in public, they have a chaperon everywhere they go, they are sold, no justice is sought for crimes committed against them, they are denied an education, and they live a very different life from their male peers. The boys can do what they want. The girls? They don't have that luxury. And if they rebel, horrible things could and can happen to them. Many are forced by family to marry young. Women are the majority who are oppressed, It's safer in this world to be a boy and not a girl. Europe and North America aren't the world. I don't consider myself a modern feminist, but I do believe in gender equality. God created us as equals.
