Women's Day in China

So March 8th is Women's Day in China. Women get half a day off, hooray! (Especially since I'm too old to get half a day for Youth Day now.)

I just had this discussion with my male manager:

him: I'm gonna hit reply all to this email from HR [about women getting a half day off for Women's Day].

me: Why? It's not [the HR girl's] fault. It's a government mandated holiday.

him: I'm gonna ask when Men's Day is.

me: (paraphrase) That's kind of a dick move.

him: But what do we get?

me: An elevated position in society? Every day!

him: ...Good point.

I think I'm going to take the morning off and have lunch with some ladies.
