Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. IWD is a day of celebrating the historical achievements of women in all fields as well as a day to look to the future of women's rights. While IWD has its roots in the Suffrage movement in the US, it is now celebrated in dozens of countries and has grown to encompass the issues that women face all over the world.

Take some time throughout the day to acknowledge the women in your life, to celebrate their accomplishments, and to consider the issues that they still face 100 years after the institution of International Women's Day.
