Ten Pop Songs for International Women’s Day


Today is International Women’s Day and everybody from Google to my Facebook friends are congratulating me. And everybody is trying to sell me stuff. It’s kinda curious how consumerist this Women’s Day has become, considering it started as a socialist celebration.

The rock I’m rockin’, I’ve bought it

Politics of Oz (oppressor to be taken down by a fool who will serve as image) and Technology/Magic battles (Technology won!? YAY?) aside, we discussed Women. Fresh off International Women’s Day [1].
