March 8 is recognized as International Women’s Day. It’s a time to recognize the struggles and accomplishments of women past and present. If you haven’t already, try to make a special point to thank the women who have made a difference in your life and learn about some of the things others have done.

Here’s is some information from their website:
Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Hundreds of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
Organizations, governments and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.
THEME: So while many people may think there is one global theme each year, this is not always correct. It is completely up to each country and group as to what appropriate theme they select.
