Bread and Roses!

It’s International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day has taken on the character of a “women’s rights” holiday, but the history of the day is deeply embedded in the international labor movement.

In that spirit, today is a good day to remember that The Catholic Worker is a contemporary as well as historic organization.

And here’s another Christian perspective, from another quarter – Jen Oshman, at Crossway.

“The biggest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution that has to start with each one of us.”
Dorothy Day
