Two Terrific Ways to Mark International Women's Day

March 3, 2009

March 8th is International Women's Day, a global event that will celebrate women's economic, political and social achievements.  Forty-eight countries will mark the date with thousands of events, both national and local.  Here are two memorable ways that you can take some time to be inspired to make a difference on your watch in helping "Team Women" to continue to progress.  I love great movies.  Both of my suggestions are "don't miss" films.  


  • Iron Jawed Angels.  Two-time Academy Award winning actress Hillary Swank plays the lead role in this fantastic film, which is one of my all-time favorites.  It's the story of Alice Paul and the other Suffragettes who won the right to vote for American women -- a job that Susan B. Anthony started 50 years earlier.  It's a powerful story, important history and a movie women, men and even teenagers will enjoy.  It's available through Blockbuster Online and NetFlix.

I hope you'll take some time to be inspired to keep striving yourself -- and encourage and ichallenge women and girls whose lives you can touch -- to live up to all of your god-given potential.
