International Women’s Day

Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.

Every year, events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

These are some of themes from around the world for 2011 that inspired me.

Women’s Voices and Influence

I believe in the power of women when we are allowed to dream and are given the resources to reach our goals, support our communities, and better our world.  I believe in the sisterhood of women and our capacity to come together to give love and compassion.

Today I honor the organizations and people working for women.

Women focused organizations I follow for their amazing work in empowering, educating, and improving the lives of women around the world.
