Happy International Women’s Day

March 8th is International Women’s Day.

A day to celebrate the accomplishments of women, to celebrate the sisterhood of all women, to ponder not only that which divides us but that which unites us.

March is also Women’s history month.  Too often the history of women has been forgotten save that of queens and the wives of important men.

It is incumbent upon each and every one to to not only know the history of women but to see to it that women’s role in history is remembered.

Sometime it is a matter of firsts and tonight I witnessed a first.

When Kathryn Bigelow won an Academy Award for both Best film (The Hurt Locker) and best director, she  became the first woman to to do so.

    A current event to add to the list of things to celebrate today: An Oscar Win for International Women’s Day! Pretty nice timing, no?
