International Women’s Day. Emphasis: InternationalMarch 8, 2010
Happy International Women’s Day! There’s not a whole lot I can say that others haven’t already said more eloquently. And while I know women in America still have ground to cover, I want to emphasize the international part here as well. Women in other parts of the world still need helping getting basic human rights and basic education — and that, I think, is what today is about.
Below, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a great IWD video message, repeating her 1995 statement in Beijing that women’s rights are human rights. Well said, Hill!
