March 8 is International Women’s Day, which women around the world are observing by going on strike and honoring the women in history and their lives. But as the inevitable backlash starts popping up, J.K. Rowling had a swift retort.

Some, many of them men, have now asked, “Well, what about a International Men’s Day?” In a tweet celebrating International Women’s Day, Rowling simply pointed out—before her followers could ask—that a Men’s International Day already exists.

If Rowling is feeling particularly snarky later, she could point out another fitting rebuke some have already made in response to trolls.
