So today is International Women's Day. And, in the blogosphere, it's also Blog Against Sexism day. So I'm taking a break from my usual babbling about my life to rant a little bit about the state of women in the world.

Doesn't that make me sound virtuous? The truth is, when I read Margaret Wente's column in the Globe and Mail yesterday, I wanted to write a letter to the editor in response. But I was so full of inarticulate rage, that I couldn't come up with anything coherent. So this rant is, in fact, the remnants of an aborted letter. But let's pretend that it's a carefully thought-out post, specifically prepared for the occasion. It makes it more special. ;)
