Girls with Guns

Female soldiers celebrate the International Women's Day by taking part in a drill on the Yongxing Island, the Xisha Islands on the South China Sea, March 8, 2015. (Xinhua/Zhao Xianghu)
Communists were always in favor of equal rights for women, hence women in the army. And they are celebrating International Women's Day, which I suppose is a good thing for women to do. But celebrating by 'taking part in a drill'? Not my idea of a celebration, but then I'm not part of the same demographic as these folks. You may not notice the canteens hanging from the pistols (it is kind of a busy picture), but filling those canteens with water could make it a bit of a challenge, especially if you were trying to shoot and hit something.
     But the best part about this picture is the location:

Right in the middle of the South China Sea.
