Happy International Women's Day 2009

International Women's Day has been observed since sometime in the early 1900's.

Originating during a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies, it has become a modern national and international fixture.

According to Raw Story:
One of this year's key events was a massive Women's Day meet this weekend in Liberia, hosted by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, which focused on the future of women in the world.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are among 400 leading women, several of them heads of state, who were expected at the gathering -- which also marks a milestone for Liberia, still recovering from its 1989-2003 civil war and hosting its first such high-profile event since the late 1970s.
(Raw Story). You have come a long way baby, but don't even think of stopping until you read Why Women Should Rule The World.

We wrote about an especially noteworthy item a while back, concerning Michelle Obama.

For the first time in history a wonderful black woman is The First Lady. She descends from slaves who built her new home!
