International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day. It’s held every year on March 8th and I’m a bit stymied as to how I did not know that. Hmmm. My head must be buried pretty deep in that sand, huh? There’s even a website devoted to it:

This day is a global celebration of the economic, political, and social achievements of women and there are even countries who consider this a national holiday, like China and Russia. It has its roots in the Suffragettes and their struggle to right the inequalities where women are concerned, so it’s been around since the early 1900’s.

So today, I celebrate each and every one of you, my friends, family, and readers. We are strong, and we are amazing. I thank you for being my sisters in, well, everything!

As for you men, check back around the 19th of November and we’ll give you your nod. 🙂
