International Women's Day


Celebrating Women Worldwide


 





 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.

I would like to share with you an article from the Central Asia Institute  (click here) that tells the story of a woman in Kabul, Afganistan, a mother of six who couldn't write a grocery list.  It is an inspiring story.  Sadly it is one that occurs to multiple millions of women and young girls worldwide.

May we join by hearts and hands in behalf of our sisters around the world who desire to fulfill their potential; receive an education and vocation; nurture, feed, and clothe their families; have good health care and live with security for themselves and their loved ones.


There are so many charitable institutions who work tirelessly on behalf of our sisters all over the globe.
I would like to share my favorite with you.

  1. Beautiful posts and photos! This is one of my favorite holidays. In Russia it's called Vosmova Marta (8th of March) and there are flowers everywhere. It's so lovely.
