Happy International Women's Day!

March 8th is International Women's Day - how are you going to celebrate??
I'll listen to Chidinma's song, Kedike, a few times (Abdoulaye made it my ring tone :)...
...and maybe even boogey to Oumou Sangaré!

You could...
listen to Amadou and Mariam,
donate to Oxfam,
read an article,
celebrate the achievements of women,
learn about an eco-friendly women's dyeing factory in Bamako,
strike a pose à la Kettly Noel,
learn more about the problems facing rural women and education,
or check out this site for more ideas on how to celebrate!

Abdoulaye and I were going to go to the CCF to see La Marche des Lionnes but now we have dinner plans with friends instead.  Hopefully we can catch the film another time!

How will you celebrate?  Had you heard of International Women's Day before?  I hadn't heard of it before coming to Mali!
