Each year around the world, International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

The theme for 2012 is "CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES". If every International Women's Day event held in 2012 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.
