"International Women's Day (Thursday 8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development."
I've seen very little on this in the local press, so I thought I'd share it here with you all. Aside from spending time with and appreciating the woman I know best, tonight I plan on heading out and buying a book by a female crime author. Not sure who just yet, I'll see what takes my fancy.
How are you choosing to mark this day?
EDIT: Ended up getting two novels, both firsts in PI series: BALTIMORE BLUES by Laura Lippman, and PEEPSHOW by Leigh Redhead.
