I felt that, since you guys/gals are so into being independant (especially that women are not chattel, and are JUST as good as men), that this would be a great place to show off a NEAT video that I found...
Please, let me know what you think!!

Every year, the Red Ajah organises a big event centered around the international event of International Woman's Day in the real world. Last year we extended the event to two weeks in honour of the 100th birthday of this event and this year we've decided to go with two weeks again. Simply because we have lots in store for you and want to give it the full attention that it deserves.
Each year, the IWD chooses a theme around which to center the event which people and organisation
The goal of this thread is to inform and start a dialogue about the happy and not so happy facts surrounding gender equality. Where applicable, I'll let you know the sources for facts, and I appreciate you do the same as you comment, leave commentary, or supply additional/refuting facts. let's try to keep it civil and respectful. Each topic will run for about 2-3 days, depending on how the discussion is going. If it's not, I'll move on, if it's hot n'heavy, I'll get it go for a bit longer!

Welcome to the Red Ajah Celebration of International Women’s Week!
In this thread, we celebrate Women as Teachers and Educators!
Over the next few weeks, we will be discussing the various Women in History who have contributed to Education, either though the building of schools, the specific Education of their children, or other contributions to Education.
Today, I introduce Fatima Al-Fihri (c. 800 AD, the European Middle Ages).
Fatima Al-Fihri was a well-educated Mu
Welcome to Red Ajah International Women's Week Cultural Thread:
A woman's role in a patriarchal world was one of a shadow, an ornament or a work horse. She was to be seen and not heard and if She had opinions She kept those to herself. There were women whose brilliance was more often than not hidden behind a subservient smile at dinner when men of lesser intellect expounded on the truths of the day. They walked in and out of art galleries knowing that they too were capable of works that
If anything, the field of music seems almost to be the great equalizer. Male and Female singers abound in every generation and have found their way to fame.
What are some of your favorite songs written or sung by women, written about women, or are inspiring to women?
I'll start with two of my favorite female artists: Loreena McKennitt and Martina McBride
Loreena McKenniitt - "The Mystic's Dream"
Boy does she have such a beautiful voice!
Welcome one and all to International Women's Week 2011 by the Red Ajah. My name is Veranza and I will be monitoring "Who Inspires You"! For the next two week we will be discussing what women have inspired you in your life, love, career, education and however in your life. Many of us have had more than one women inspire us throughout our lives, but let us start out slow and go with one at a time.
I will start and state that the first woman that ever inspired me to do better was Janet Evans, O
Women and religion. Most of you can hear the big heavy doors shutting women out of every religious arena, right? As in other areas of life - art, literature, science - women have found it difficult to serve in the church. Of course, in religion, it is said that God is opposed to women in leadership/authority roles. It's hard to argue with that, right?
Argue with it we must!! This is a hot button topic for me as I'm sure it is for many of you. Below are links for you to peruse

This year is a great year in the International Women’s Day. For 100 years, IWD has been honoring those women who are such a big part of everyone’s life. International Women’s Day was originally National Women’s Day and started in 1909, in the US. By 1910 Clara Zetkin, of Germany, proposed a day for celebration and realization in every country. Thus by 1911, International Women’s day was born.

Each year the Red Ajah from Dragonount organises an event called International Woman’s Week. Traditionally this occurs in the week leading up to the real life International Woman’s Day event on 8th March and is generally centered around the theme of the year set by IWD.
This year, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of IWD and our expanding our own IWW to two weeks with an extra week for a r
Each month, the Red Ajah publishes a story about a modern day hero or real life Servant of All submitted by one of the WT members. These are the stories about people in our own world.
This month's story was submitted by Poetstorm and while she minimizes her own role in the story, we don't. The story demonstrates that gender has no bearing on the heart and the character of a person.
We honor the bus driver, the husband and Poetstorm for stepping up to do the right thing.
