We’re on the Road for International Women’s Day!

March 04, 2012

We’ve been talking a lot about ways to celebrate international women’s day in our recent blog posts, so we thought we’d share which events we’re attending this week (and which we wish we could!) to commemorate the occasion. It is the 101st anniversary of the event, after all! We hope you can attend some of these fantastic events. Which others should we know about?
