WOOF: Media Monday - It's Only The Beginning!
Each year, the National Women’s History Project selects a theme that highlights achievements by distinguished women in specific fields, from medicine and the environment to art and politics. The 2011 theme, “Our History Is Our Strength,” emphasizes the importance of learning about women’s tenacity, courage and creativity throughout the centuries. It also pays tribute to the millions of women who helped create a better world for the times in which they lived as well as for future generations.
This year also marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women, which took place for the first time on March 8, 2011. Many countries around the world continue to observe the holiday on that date, often with demonstrations, educational initiatives and customs such as presenting women with gifts and flowers.
WOOF proudly supports WOOFers all over the world by saying, "What's with just one day? We know we're special 24/7 - 365 days a year!"
