Happy International Women’s Day 2013! The United Nations theme for the day, “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women,” and the International Women’s Day theme for 2013 is “The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum.” Women have come a long way in the world, but there is still a lot of work to be done. International Women’s Day started 100 years ago and we have made great strides. We now have the right to vote, hold office and basically do anything a man can do, but we face limitations across the world. Let us remember all the victims of violence, like Anene Booysen, who was viciously raped and disemboweled in South Africa. Let us resolve to unite for the good of women across the globe. Happy International Women’s Day 2013.
