International Women's Day
March 8th - today it's International Women's Day... I think it is very unfortunate that in 2010 we still need a day to remember discrimination against women and in general to celebrate Women. The first International Women's Conference was held in Copenhagen a century ago and the first International Women's Day was honoured for the first time in 1911 in 4 European countries including Denmark. Here is an example again of why I am proud of being Danish!
There are still too many countries where women's rights are not respected and still too many differences between men & women, boys and girls around the globe. There is still a lot to be done for women & men to be equal even in the western world and in developping countries even more so. Please have a look on the IWD's website to see what is happening in your countries and how the day is celebrated in others.
To all Women around the world: HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY!!
