International Women's Day

Wouldn't it be great if all people can get along with everyone as equals, with mutual respect, kindness and love. Then there'd be no need to celebrate separate days for one another. There'd only be one International Day of Humanity.

IWD celebrates 101 years in 2012, and the theme for this year is Empower Women – End Hunger and Poverty
