International Women's Day

Another quick post! I was reminded this morning that today is International Women's Day.
Celebrated on 8 March, International Women's Day (IWD) is the global day connecting all women around the world and inspiring them to achieve their full potential. IWD celebrates the collective power of women past, present and future.
You can find out more about this on the IWD website.

Here's a round-up of all the blogs on our blogroll who have blogged about IWD:

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira on Al-Baal Cafe

Aaron on An Englishman in Dubai

Wendy on Babasiga

Destitute Rebel on Pakistani Abysmal Ramblings

Louis on The Journey of Life

Here's to the women celebrating this day, and to the men who are celebrating your women on this day!

In the nick of time! lol

I must confess I had also forgotten until a dear blogger friend pointed it out to me early in the morning! lol

Thanks for the link to IWD. I got an email last year, on the subject of International Damn Fine Woman's Day, and meant to forward it this year, but wasn't quite sure when to send it. Searches showed that these emails were flying about, making people happy, on any day you care to mention - which seems quite reasonable to me! So now I've got the link, so no matter what I'm doing, I'll know next year. Ta ever so!

Sha'ira: I wasn't even aware that there was such a day!

On Babasiga blog, Wendy writes of the reaction to IWD from the Fijian women stallholders. When told of IWD, they ask if it's going to help them to sell more produce. I think that it really sums things up nicely! LOL.

Goodie Girl: thanks - we aim to please!

MamaDuck: welcome back - you and Keefie have lately been strangers to our comments section! From now on, you just have to remember that March 8th is IWD every year!

Three cheers to women power!

BTW, you need to optimize your blog I guess…it takes a cool 2 minutes to load!

Kishor: I noticed that in IE, it's damn slow sometimes, but in Firefox and Netscape it's ok.

Also, since Google Blogger started storing blog images in Google Picasa, photo-loading has been a real hit-and-miss pain in the proverbial. It might be this causing the issues as we have so many images on the page.

Forgot to say - try refreshing our blog page in your browser - that can help sometimes too.
