International Women's Day

‘Give us a dignified life.’ From: Jesusa in Bolivia/HelpAge International

So it's Fat Tuesday and International Women's Day.  What to celebrate. Hmmm. WOMEN. I stumbled over this photo album in development on The Guardian website. The photos are, "With the recent launch of UN Women (24th February), and the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day (8th March), [they're] collecting messages to and from the world's women on the issues that matter most." I love that the first pic is a Bolivian Chola, so I had to post this! The Guardian has a great list of the Top 100 Women which is addicting to journey through. I really liked the lists for Art and Film and Writing and Academia. Great stuff! Enjoy!
