International Women's Day

Happy International Women's Day! 

International Women's Day was first observed in 1911 as International Working Women's Day.  In 1977 the United Nations declared March 8th as UN Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.  Today is the day for celebrating women, for looking at all we have achieved, and for all that must be achieved for gender equality to be a reality.
