Goal: 15,000 Progress: 3,247
Sponsored by: The Breast Cancer Site

March 8th is International Women's Day and it has been celebrated for over a hundred years. Each year all over the world, people get together for conferences, rallies, theatrical performances, craft markets — activities that honor women's achievements and progress.

But did you know that close to 70% of the world's poverty-stricken are women? Did you know that between 100 and 140 million girls have experienced genital mutilation? How about that one in five women will be a victim of rape in her lifetime?

With numbers like these, it's clear that women have not yet attained full equality in our male-driven world. We need programs for job training, education, and family planning to give women the tools to make their own informed and educated decisions.

International Women's Day is a great place to start. Sign the pledge below promoting women's equality everywhere and in the comments section, tell us about a woman who inspires you.
