International Women’s Day, March 8

 Every year, a Romanian friend of mine, Laura, organizes a meetup in honor of International Women’s Day, IWD, which is celebrated on March 8. Last year, there were women from Romania, Poland, Estonia, Mexico, Russia, China, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, and Miss wisemommies (representing for the US womenJ ) I had so much fun!! It is wonderful to have a GNO with women from all over the world to celebrate IWD.


This year the 2012 Theme, established by the IWD website is: CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES  “If every International Women’s Day event held in 2012 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.” However, many organizations, governments, charities and women’s groups develop their own themes sometimes more specific to their local cause or contexts.
