Happy Leap Day!
Leap Year was historically a year of gender role-reversal: once every four years, women were allowed to propose marriage to men. The creator of the American comic strip character "Sadie Hawkins," spawned the February 29th trend of "Sadie Hawkins Dances." At these, women could boldly invite the man of their choice out on a date, typically to a dance attended by other bachelors and their assertive dates.
Or just rent the movie
Put on your Leap Year jewelry
And get busy like these lovely ladies!
