Challenge #66

Challenge #66, March 8, 2011: On the streets today, men were handing out flowers to all the women that walked past. Unknown by me, March 8th has been named International Women’s Day. It is a day to celebrate and inspire women, their achievements, and their continual growth.

Today, give a little thought to the great achievements of women. Also, acknowledge and appreciate the hardworking women you come across (and even those that aren’t quite as hard working).

About onechallengeaday

I am searching for nothing and absorbing everything. My eyes are open--I am wondering, I am wandering. I was made to run, to think, and to write. And that is what I plan to do.

  1. Wow, this is the first I have heard of an International Women’s Day! Too bad this day is not more widely celebrated and acknowledged.
    As part of the challenge you are giving, I will say that I appreciate reading the challenges on your blog. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks Sharon! I’ve been neglecting the blog a little bit, but I think I’m beginning to get back into the swing of things.

    I had never heard of Women’s Day either! Apparently here in Europe it is a pretty big deal. There was a huge march in Warsaw on Sunday and I assume it was for this cause. Hopefully soon it will spread into the United States!

    I, too, had no idea such a day existed. Yet without a woman in our life, none of us would be here – literally. Thanks mom! 🙂
