Ladies, what are you doing to celebrate IWD's global centenary? Here are some ideas....

International Women's Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some countries like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, IWD is a national holiday. The first IWD event was run in 1911, so 2011 sees the Global Centenary.

Check out organisations such as the EuropeanPWN and Women’s Business Initiative International.

Also check out Expatica's Groups and clubs listings for women's groups and clubs.
