Women of the World, Unite!

I can’t let International Women’s Day pass unmentioned.

I’ve been thinking today about women I have loved and respected, women who have helped me in my personal life and my career, women I have joined forces with to do good in the world, women who amaze me.

I also have been thinking about all the stories and books we read about how mean girls can be – and while I’m not saying that isn’t true, I have been contrasting that with how amazingly supportive and helpful women can be.

I hope everyone has taken a little time today to think about important women in their lives and in their worlds.To take you past the personal, and inspire you to think about the larger issues that face women around the world, I want to share this fabulous interactive infographic mapping women’s political rights around the world.
