Blog for International Women’s Day

Gender Across Borders presents…..

Blog for International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day [IWD] was on Monday, March 8, 2010. As set by the United Nations, this year’s theme was Equal rights, equal opportunity: Progress for all.” While we here at GAB believe that equal rights for women should be celebrated every day, this particular event was a day for people to come together and blog about the progress of rights and opportunity for women worldwide.

This was the first year that we asked you (yes, YOU) to blog for IWD on March 8, 2010. Because this event is over, the sign-up form has been closed. Please refer to the list of blogs that participated in Blog for International Women’s Day.

In 2010, we asked bloggers to think about any of the following questions in regards to the U.N.’s theme for IWD:

  • What does “equal rights for all” mean to you?
  • Describe a particular organization or moment in history that helped to mobilize a meaningful change in equal rights for all.

Here at GAB we live-blogged throughout the day (click here to see that blog), highlighting some of your posts and what said about “equal rights for all.”

Thanks you to all of those who participated in Blog for International Women’s Day. We had over 147 blogs participating, and because of this great success, we’ll be back next year! So see you in 2011.
