If you didn’t know already, today is International Women’s Day. A day to reflect on all that women have given us, and how mistreated all women, straight, lesbian, or trans, have been in the past and even in the present. After an absurd battle in congress, the 1994 Violence Against Women Act was finally passed and signed by Obama on Thursday. This time, extended with protections for women on Native American tribal lands, immigrants, and gays and lesbians.
To respect this day, I suggest clicking over and reading Melinda Gates’ (Bill Gates wife) opinion piece on CNN, or head to International Women’s Day website and read some of their articles and find events in your area.
And if you’re a visual person, watch the video from Google after the jump.
