By Yasmin Popescu
It's just one week and a few days before International Women's Day (March 8) and one organization is commemorating the day with a blog.
Gender Across Borders and CARE is hosting the Third Annual Blog for International Women's Day, a day where bloggers, writers, and humanitarian organizations are asked to write about the International Women's Day theme on March 8.
This year's theme is "Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures" and bloggers are being asked to address one or both of the following points: How can we, as a culture and as members of the global community, involve, educate, and inspire girls in a positive way?
Participants are asked to describe a particular organization, person, group or moment in history that helped to inspire a positive future and impact the minds and aspirations for girls.
Throughout the day of March 8, they will have an ongoing live blog of what participants have to say about "Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures" at GenderAcrossBorders.com.
They will also feature articles from their staff writers about issues that girls around the world face today.
Also on Wednesday, March 7 in addition to the blogging event on March 8, Gender Across Borders will co-host She Party, a weekly virtual happy hour hosted by the Women's Media Center.
On Wednesday, March 7 from 3-5 p.m. EST, they will discuss the theme of "Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures."
