International Woman's Day March 8th

It is the 100th Anniversary of International Woman's Day.
The first year of International Women's Day they held a parade to honor and raise awareness of the plight of the women and children who die in the work place- the Triangle Fire in New York City in which the workers were unable to escape because the owner had locked them in and so 140 women and child labors died in the fire. A Nightmare. This event rallied women into action.
Today we are asking everyone to stand on a bridge anywhere and anytime on March 8th. This is to honor all the women and children killed in the wars happening in our world.
75% of the human beings killed are women and children- yes, the ones that have no protection. For details:
I urge you to go to www.womenforwomen.org
Everyone needs to be on that Bridge.
