In case you didn’t know, March 8 was International Women’s Day. And while it may seem like gender inequality is a thing of the past, discrimination still exists, both here in America and abroad. In this issue, our contributors address the issues of gender disparities and identify progress their countries are making towards equality. In this issue, you can go on a job hunt in Russia with Marta, hear a typical conversation between a Japanese husband and wife from Yu, and hear French opinions of the holiday thanks to Simon.
