Tomorrow is International Women’s Day. If you’re a woman, celebrate. If you’re a man, recognize all of the powerful, fearless, caring, and creative women in your life!

This year’s event focuses on ending violence against women. Take a look at these appalling statistics on the UN website.

On a happy note, in time for IWD, American women will now have more protection against domestic violence. The House and Senate have passed the Violence Against Women Act. Amazing!!

While we’re talking about making the world a better place, there are a few environmental events happening in a few weeks.

World Water Day is on March 22. And Earth Hour is on March 23. If you haven’t participated in Earth Hour before, this is the year!

And lastly, for my Boston friends: Did you see The Onion article about Boston today? Harumph!
