Celebrating International Women's Day!

In honor of International Women's Day, the Google Cultural Institute is partnering with an incredible mix of museums, archives, and cultural groups from around the world to launch "Women in Culture," a special collection of exhibitions highlighting achievements by women artists, leaders, and innovators. Check the link out, if you're interested:)

Maybe you'll have time to check out the PBS series 

MAKERS: Women Who Make America which tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy.

And, there's a Google Doodle in celebration of Women's Day. See here:

It seems nice, but I dont think there needs to be an agenda. We're all just people. Why not an international Men's day as well? Don't forget the children.
