International Women’s Day in Guatemala

International Women's Day in Guatemala by Rudy Girón

I share with you what my friend and colleague Willy expressed about the International Women’s Day:

Willy: ¿Hoy es día de la mujer? ¿Otra vez? ¡Todos los días son días de la mujer! Los hombres nos rendimos ante ustedes a diario, libramos guerras, perdemos amigos, hacemos locuras por ustedes las mujeres… Todos los días son días de la mujer.

Willy: Today’s women’s day? Again? Every day is a women’s day! We men surrender before you daily, go to war, lose friends, do crazy things for you women… Each and every day is women’s day.

On another part of the Facebook universe, Manolo shared this interesting fact taken from the article Revealed: The best and worst places to be a woman published by The Independent:

18. Best place to leave your husband: Guam

The Micronesian island of Guam has the highest divorce rate in the world, and Guatemala has the lowest. The number of divorces in England and Wales in 2010 increased by 4.9 per cent since 2009.

I recommend reading the entire article for some interesting facts about women.

  • I think it is time to create a line of LAGDP post-cards. Maybe promote them @ your favourite hangouts? (sushi anyone?). 
    Oh, and about the divorce rate… we try to do our part, but I guess it doesn’t count if the divorce was in another jurisdiction… and 10 years ago.

    I will read the entire article mentioned, but Willy’s comments make me laugh.  I will surrender, lose friends, or do crazy things for the ladies any day.  Vale la pena, para obtener el tesoro del amor de una guatemalteca.  ;D
