100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day
March 8 - In recognition of the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated on March 7 in Washington, "The United States continues to make women a cornerstone of our foreign policy. It's not just the right thing to do. It's the smart thing. Women and girls drive our economies. They build peace and prosperity. Investing in them means investing in global economic progress, political stability, and greater prosperity for everyone - the world over. So let us mark this day by finding ways to ensure women and girls' access to education, healthcare, jobs, and credit, and to protect their right to live free from violence."
