Today, 8th of March, 2011, part of the world are celebrating the 100th International Women's Day. Here, I gain some information from the Wikipedia how the day being recognized and if wants to know more just click here.
International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day is marked on the 8th of March every year. It is a major day of global celebration of women. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.
The first IWD was observed on 19 March 1911 in Germany following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America. The idea of having an international women's day was first put forward at the turn of the 20th century amid rapid world industrialization and economic expansion that led to protests over working conditions.

So, for all the women out there, I would like to wish a very Happy Women's Day. Hope we can be what we wants and achieve all the things that we targeted before in honorable way that our family will stay proud of.
