Curse you, Old Man Winter!

Well, that settles it. Of all days to bundle up because of the cold weather, it has to be on National Cleavage Day. Granted, it’s not really a Canadian holiday…not yet, at least. Starting small, I’m about to change all that. I’ve already caught a few glances of my man cleavage being observed and am feeling very empowered.

According to Samantha Paterson, the brand manager for Wonderbra, the National Cleavage Day started according to a design to solemnize women’s independence and power in all facets of life, from their careers to their relationships to their own destiny.

Paterson explained, “It gives women a chance to be beautiful and glow in the furtive, yet appreciative, glances their cleavage evokes from men. It gives men a legitimate reason to stare at boobs”.

Sunday is International Women’s Day 2009

This Sunday, show the women in your life how important they are by celebrating International Women’s Day. Across the world, men show their appreciation by giving flowers and thanking their mothers, sisters, daughters and any others who have made an impact on their being.

International Women's Day

Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day 2009 is Strong Leadership. Strong Women. Strong World: Equality.

8 March 2009 marks the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day, and offers a valuable opportunity to celebrate past accomplishments and gains; pay tribute to current efforts; and focus on the challenges that still lie ahead in working towards equality, justice, peace and development for women.

An event titled “Celebrate Our Voice – Women’s Stories” will be held 9AM to 2PM on March 7 at the Lethbridge Senior Citizens Organization, hosted by the Lethbridge & District YWCA.
