Today, Friday March 8, 2013 is International Women’s Day.

International Women's DayObserved since the early 1900s, International Women’s Day has become a global day of recognition across developed and developing countries alike and in some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria today is a national holiday. Every year on this day thousands of events are held to inspire women and celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

Women — take a moment today to reflect on what it means to be a woman today.

Men —  take a moment to reflect on the women in your life.

Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, lovers, and so many more — we are women! The more united we are, the stronger we are.

Let’s make everyday International Women’s Day!
