International Women’s Day 2013

Today is International Women’s Day.  According to InternationalWomensDay.com,

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.

Last year, I celebrated by posting this video.  It’s one of my favorites, and I feel everyone should watch it – not least because International Women’s Day is an important observation.

For more Women’s Day goodness, check out Girls in Capes.  We’ve got five great articles scheduled to go up throughout the day.  One of them will likely make you think – and one will analyze the video posted above.

I know I promised you all that my first post of March would be about the AWP conference I recently attended, but as I haven’t gotten around to it yet and it’s an important day, I figured you’d forgive me.

Happy International Women’s Day!  Learn more about International Women’s Day here and, since I’m just going to keep it brief, ponder over this video my boyfriend sent me this morning.  As someone concerned with feminism, I thought it was beautiful and moving and terribly, terribly sad.  All at once.
