Celebrate International Women's Day today

 Hello Gorgeous,
It's a day to remember what, how and where women have come from. Much has been gained but there is so much more to do. Today I encourage you, to help another lady today-whatever age she may be, do something kind for her. It speaks volumes about who we are as women, mothers, sisters and wives.

About International Women's Day

When:  Friday 8 March 2013
Where: Everywhere
What:   International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday.
Why:   Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Women's Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. The first International Women's Day event was run in 1911
