Celebrating International Women’s Day
Today, March 8, 2011, marks International Women’s Day (IWD). IWD is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of giving women in society an equal footing with men. It is not only a time for men, women and children to reflect on progress and changes made worldwide but it is also a time for everyone to celebrate the determination of ordinary women who played an extraordinary role in the history of women’s rights. This celebration is 100 years today, and so I made this video in its honor.
Happy International Women’s Day everyone!
