I'll Be Sure to Wear Flowers in My Hair, Like a Good Woman Should

It’s International Woman’s Day today. Here’s hoping for equality! I was reading a bit today about Harper’s child-care policy. I’m not sure what I think of it. But it scares the crap out of me that so many people believe that a woman’s place is at home. If that’s your choice, that’s great, and who knows, it may be one I will make when we have kids. But that is a choice, and one every woman should get to make. I’ve been observing, quietly, and from what I see, it’s still the “woman’s role” to take care of the kids.. at least, that’s what I see. Maybe it’s just the people around me, but it’s a little disheartening. Time will tell…

I’m headed to San Francisco on Friday morning, to attend the IEEE RAB GOLD meeting as Region 7 rep. I’ve never been there. It’s a new committee for me, I’ve been a bit slow on the uptake this time but will get into the swing of it and be a good rep for my region. I’ll get to see some old faces though (old meaning not new, not old as in oooooooooooolllllllld) , as the SAC committee meets at the same time. Plus, I get to see Geoff after the two weeks I haven’t seen him.
