International Women’s Day

Greetings on International Women’s Day, celebrated since 1910 (except in U.S. where it was seen as a Commie plot – not until revival of Women’s Liberation Movement in the 1960’s did we start celebrating it here).  Unfortunately, not a lot to celebrate this year as the right-wing is now attacking Birth Control!! Saw a graphic on TV showing that about 20 times more bills introduced into State legislatures to restrict women’s reproductive rights in 2010 and in 2011 than in any of the Bush years.
