International Women's Day
Today is International Women's Day.
More than 15,000 women marched in New York City in 1908 demanding shorter working hours, better pay and voting rights.
One hundred years later, we've got our voting rights. And the first woman candidate for President of The United States.
Not so in the rest of the world.
Women still hold up half of the sky, as that Ancient Chinese saying goes, but we bear more than our share of the world's burden.
