International Women's Day ~ March 8th

The first International Women's Day was in 1911, so today is the 100th time this event has been celebrated.  This photo by NaPix - Hmong Soul shows "Black Hmong woman Khu, planting rice with her baby, Mi Tu, on her back all day long."  When I ran across this photo, I thought about childcare.  Mothers have their children "on their backs" always, even if not physically. Women are the ones who feel the weight of caring for the children.
