On March 8th, International Women’s Day, Jingjing and Yajun were invited to two different panels to discuss women’s issues and how men can better support their wives or girlfriends. They both learnt a lot and were inspired by the debate.
On this episode, they share key takeaways from the panel discussions.
They also express their strong “resentment” toward the Chinese translation of Women’s Day (“三八妇女节”) – and they are not the only ones. After hearing of a female friend’s experience of being invited to speak at four panels on March 8th, they cannot help thinking that it is great that this day reminds everyone that women’s issues are important, but that – more importantly – the conversation should continue for the other 364 days of the year.
Last but not least, they also want to highlight the importance of inviting men into the discussion of women issues and having a mutual conversation which will help us all to understand where each side is coming from. So if any gentlemen are passionate about women’s issues, please reach out!
