Each year around the world, International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
When the One Billion Rising campaign (http://onebillionrising.org/) went global on 14 February 2013, I was travelling. I therefore didn't have time to contribute directly to the commentary arising from this important event. But the agency I work for was definitely involved, I'm glad to say.
