March 8th 2012 is the 101st International Women's Day. The day may be marked by parties or protests, a focus on women's rights and inequality or a celebration of progress and achievements. Silly or serious, political or apolitical, understated or over the top, today is a great day to appreciate the women in your life and to reflect on the triumphs and trials of women around the world.
