Yesterday was International Womyn’s* Day! Shoutout to all the strong beautiful women in the world!


International Women’s Day Website:

“International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, IWD is a national holiday. The first IWD was run in 1911. Next year is IWD Global Centenary 1911-2011.”

IWD 100 years

“International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.”

*We chose to spell the word with a “y” in order to avoid patriarchal connotations, “womyn” versus “woMAN”
