Yeah, no real post today, I’m on strike. It’s International Women’s Day.
Ha. I wish. What mother could ever go on strike? Although I’ll note that Classic Fountain Pens is closed today “in respect for the work women do here and around the world.” Nice! Shout-out to them.
Whatever International Women’s Day is, I’m for it, even without a strike. On the website, it says the idea is “to help forge a better working world — a more inclusive, gender equal world.” That’s nice.
I think “gender equal” isn’t necessarily a concept that really applies to fountain pens and ink, but I think the fountain pen world is a pretty inclusive place. So three cheers for fountain pens and inks, and the people who work in, and enjoy, fountain pens and inks.
