International Women’s Day

Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.  It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate women worldwide and to remind ourselves of the work yet to be done to fight gender inequality.  But it is sad that we need a special day for this.  With two young nieces growing up, my hope is that by the time they become adults, they will know no hint of inequality or discrimination.
