International Women's Day

...was this past Monday. Yes, we missed it. But we want to recognize it anyway, because celebrating women is always something we're on board with.

There's a website to tell you all about International Women's Day, including a slideshow of Reuters pictures from that day around the world.

And, 11 Women who are Changing the World, including people like Nujood Ali, who was forced to marry when she was ten years old and managed to get a divorce; Somaly Mam, who was sold into sex slavery as a child and has started a foundation to end human trafficking and slavery; and Marie C. Wilson, who's working to get women more involved in politics.

Women don't have to be international figures to be influential. Do you know any women who are changing the world?
