Women’s Day

Today, on International Women’s Day, as a father of two daughters, I want to mention that I’m sad that in some countries women are treated without respect. My two daughters, grown up, with children, yet have the ability to unfold professionally: one is a banker in Munich, the other doctorate architect in Berlin.

The seemingly largest disregard vs. women maybe is currently in India, so once again my link to the women’s rights activist Rita Banerji in Calcutta:

  4. I am always thankful to have been born in a society where women are given the option to choose their path. One can only hope that there will be a time when women all over the world will be able to do so.
