Celebrate International Women’s Day by making a micro loan to a woman or group of women through KIVA today.  $25 can go a long ways toward helping a group of women gain economic stability.  You won’t regret it.

International Women’s day and so much more

So much happening today.

The 2012 BC Book Prizes short-lists were announced (see my earlier post) and the movement to change the rating of “Bully,” a documentary that has been slapped with an “R” rating, is in full swing. I love that a 17 year old activist is the one leading this campaign to change the rating of a documentary about bullying so that it can be shown in middle and high schools. It goes to show that we all do have the ability to make a difference.

And, isn’t it cool that this is all happening on International Women’s Day, especially given this year’s  theme of “Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures.” What could be more inspiring than a 17 year old girl taking on film censorship.
