Each year March 8th is International Women's Day, a day to remember and honour all the women who have fought to secure our rights. Do you do anything special to celebrate the day? If so, what?

I've been trying to think of something special to do with my daughter on the day this year. I'm not sure what yet.

I also thought I might look into making a KIVA loan towards a woman's education in honour of the day.
That is something special Jennifer :)

I don't do anything special on the day, but I do acknowledge and appreciate its existence.
I feel humble that day, and I know in my heart what a great day it is.
This year, I'm having a treat to a high tea....and in remembrance, with others.
It is nothing too special, but just to be in the moment.What women have had to endure, has been to me a huge wake up!
God bless all those who went before us.
Can't say that I do...
Great question!

I don't do anything special to celebrate International Women's Day either, but I do acknowledge its being and share it with other people.

I think it's important to recognise that women, in the past and in the present, have made a lot of sacrifices and worked very hard to receive recognition and enjoy rights as men do. I think it's equally as important to recognise that there is still a long way to go in many spheres of experience, and that what works for one set of women, may not work for another. In other words, we as individuals must not assume that all women want the same things and therefore insinuate our own values, attitudes and beliefs onto others.

I appreciate its existence and will go out for a hot chocolate with my daughter this year.
Did this year by going to a lunch with Jacqui Dinan, as Guest Speaker.
She has written two books, each about the contributions of women in WWI, & WWII.

Found it very engaging, & enjoyed talking to the other ladies' at my table. We'd never met b4, but all got on well, & lively conversation ensued!
A most enjoyable time had by all! Hope to do same next year!
