Today marks the 100th anniversary of...  

75 comments


Today, activists all over the world are gathering on bridges to show their support for gender equality. It might be too late to attend a bridge gathering near you, but you can see from this map just how many bridge events happened across the globe. Pretty incredible.

There are plenty of other IWD events to attend today/tonight, so find one near you.



Google even dedicated one of its famous doodles to International Women's Day.

Head on over to the IWD website for some cool stuff, including photos of women celebrating all over the world. And if you're a social media junkie like myself, read Mashable's "How To Support International Women's Day Using Social Media." By the way, look to your right to see IWD on Twitter.

Mashable also posted this nifty video from Equals that lists many of the ways women and men are not equal (and it features Daniel Craig in drag!)



Even if you just stay at home today, find a way to celebrate. Enjoy today, enjoy how far we've come, and enjoy the women who did so much to get us here.

What next?

A female cow and male horse were also rejected. They would later turn up as Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar.A male frog, also rejected, would later show up in Iwerks' own Flip the Frog series.

    Hermione opened her mouth to respond, but with a soft hiss, Crookshanks leapt onto her lap. Hermione took one frightened look at the expression on Ron’s face, gathered up Crookshanks, and hurried away toward the girls’ dormitories.
    “So how about it?” Ron said to Harry as though there had been no interruption. “Come on, last time we went you didn’t see any¬thing. You haven’t even been inside Zonko’s yet!”
    Harry looked around to check that Hermione was well out of earshot.
    “Okay,” he said. “But I’m taking the Invisibility Cloak this time.”

    Their fellow campers were starting to wake up. First to stir were the families with small children; Harry had never seen witches and wizards this young before. A tiny boy no older than two was crouched outside a large pyramid-shaped tent, holding a wand and poking happily at a slug in the grass, which was swelling slowly to the size of a salami. As they drew level with him, his mother came hurrying out of the tent.
    “How many times, Kevin? You don’t — touch — Daddy’s — wand — yecchh!”
    She had trodden on the giant slug, which burst. Her scolding carried after them on the still air, mingling with the little boy’s yells — “You bust slug! You bust slug!”
