Google Doodle Masthead, 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day

Yesterday, Google had a Google Doodle on their masthead commemorating the 100 anniversary of International Women’s Day.  Google along with Women For Women International also helped promote the “Join Women On The Bridge”.  Supporters were to meet on hundreds of bridges through out the world in a show of support for women and women issues.  The United Nations theme for 2011 is “Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women.”  The global theme is women and men united to end violence against women and girls which is being actively supported by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

You can read more on the history of International Women’s Day and how it is observed in various countries at Wikipedia, International Women's Day.

In Pittsburgh there was “Join Women On The Bridge” on the Rachel Carson Bridge in downtown Pittsburgh.  A group of women were on hand expressing concerns for the women of Afghanistan especially after the Nato and US forces leave the country. 

You can find out more information on International Women’s Day and the “Join Women on the Bridge" programs at the following websites.
