SUNDAY FUNNIES: I AM WOMAN! (International Women's Day, celebrity comments)

The baby dragon
Hello Everybody. Today you have both Waxy Dragon AND Autumn the Puppy, because it's International Women's Day!
The puppy

That's right Waxy. Now, depending upon where you live, this celebration has been everything from a political message to an event honoring the ladies of the world. Yet there is no denying that women do make up a very important part of the world.

Right on Autumn! From Betsy Ross to Florence Nightingale, from Gilda Radner to Margaret Thatcher, there have been many famous women throughout history. Now why a lot of countries only pay women up to 78% of what their men earn is a mystery to me.

I wish I knew the answer to that one myself Waxy. Anyway, being women ourselves (sort of), we certainly aren't going to tell women themed jokes and belittle the celebration. So instead we're going to use one of my regular features and present some female based celebrity comments. Ready?

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness."—Oprah Winfrey.
"Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And if/when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others."—Amelia Earhart.
Or in other words ladies, if at first you don't succeed: try again!

"I cannot say that women are better are men, but we are certainly no worse."—Golda Meir.
"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot."—John Lennon.
Women are not perfect. We are not saying we are superior. But we ARE living, thinking beings who deserve the respect and dignity of life.

"All women's issues are to some degree men's issues, and all men's issues are to some degree women's issues."—Warren Farrell
"I believe that women still face a glass ceiling that must be shattered."—Andrew Cuomo.
In a famous speech, Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior said he had a dream in which his children were judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Shouldn't the same criteria apply to gender as well?

And on that note, have a great week and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—Waxy Dragon AND Autumn the Puppy.
