March 8 is International Women's Day. Although there is much to celebrate about, this day should also be a time to remember that there is a lot left to accomplish for women's rights, health and education around the world, even in "developed" countries. The simple fact that there is a need for a yearly event to celebrate women's achievements speaks volumes.
Here are a few links where you can find information on the subject.
