Happy International Women's Day

Taken from the International Women's Day website:

Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women's Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing countries alike. For decades, IWD has grown from strength to strength annually...Women's organisations and governments around the world have also observed IWD annually on 8 March by holding large-scale events that honour women's advancement and while diligently reminding of the continued vigilance and action required to ensure that women's equality is gained and maintained in all aspects of life.
To all my bloggy friends, Happy International Women's Day! You are all truly wonderful, beautiful, caring women and I feel very honoured to know you and be able to share this amazing experience with all of you.
