International Women's Day

A friend and I were talking yesterday evening about how fortunate we are to be women in America in this day and age. It is tempting to glorify the past, but to be serious, it was actually pretty rough to be a woman then in many ways. Giving birth was a terrible risk; education was out; property ownership was out; voting was out. Wow! I am so blessed. I certainly wouldn't have been working as an engineer.

Anyway then you think about it and realize that in other places, even in America there's still a long way to go.

I love BBC News' "In Pictures" features. Well today highlights International Women's Day. Click on the picture to see more beautiful and amazing sisters from around the world.

Anyway, what can we do to help with the fight?
