True Femininity Clashes with Feminist Holiday in Texas

On March 8, many women nationwide dressed up and celebrated a special occasion. They explained to curious bystanders that they were observing Lady Day, a special day to celebrate how women might embrace their God-given role in society. Thousands of women felt as if they were truly “liberated” from the political correctness that says all women should be radical feminists.

Lady Day is an initiative of the Return to Order campaign promoted by American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP). It seeks to restore in a positive way a true image of womanhood. This image is in contrast to radical feminists who observe International Women’s Day on March 8 as a means to advocate gender ideology, the sexual revolution and immodesty.

Every year, hundreds of small groups of Catholic ladies get together, elegantly and modestly dressed, to celebrate true womanhood by going on an outing together or visiting a tea room. Many times they will also visit a Marian shrine and pray together.

In this way, women can celebrate true womanhood which, in turn, fosters higher moral standards in society and among children.

“All eyes followed us as we were shown to our table…”

Mrs. Theresa Cena sends this report about her ‘Lady Day’ experience in Houston, Texas;

“Our Lady Day was attended by ten ladies from the Houston area. We began with Sunday Mass at Regina Caeli Catholic Church in Houston. We then met at a local restaurant for lunch.

Since all the ladies in our group were elegantly dressed for Lady Day (and Sunday Mass), all eyes followed us as we were shown to our table in the restaurant.

The waitress naturally asked us what the occasion was. She was impressed when we explained the idea of ‘Lady Day’.  As we finished our meal the waitress brought out, much to our surprise, a tea set. She said it was compliments of the manager who was impressed with our event. He had even brewed a special mint and cinnamon tea for us that was not on the menu.

After we finished the delicious tea, we thanked the manager and the waitress for their kindness and they expressed their gratitude to our group for gracing their restaurant.

We then drove to the Museum district and prayed the rosary in front of the Sam Houston monument in Hermann Park. This was a wonderful place because we were surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and people could see us from all directions.

After the Rosary, we visited the nearby Museum of Fine Art. Much like the restaurant, all heads turned in our direction as our group of ladies toured an exhibit titled “Glories of Spain.”

Browsing through the displays, we marveled at liturgical vestments with intricate, hand-woven designs and Biblical scenes, engraved golden chalices and relics of the saints.

We were also captivated by large, illuminated manuscripts of hymns and prayers, antique jewelry such as a locket with an image of the Annunciation and a life-size painting of the Immaculate Conception. While admiring the painting, we realized that it was time to pray to the Angelus. So we were delighted to pray aloud together in front of the image.

Our Lady Day ended on this high note. We all felt both blessed and proud to have been a part of this Counter-Revolutionary action.”
