And that’s a good thing for all women to celebrate, mom or not, working outside the home or staying at home.

Even though International Women’s Day may not be a familiar holiday, it has been around for some time, starting in 1909. I can’t say I’m so fond of the founders, the Socialist Party of America, but I love the idea.

Here in the United States, we women are quite fortunate. We can work outside the home, own property, have legal rights and more. Things aren’t perfect, but they’re tremendously better than many other places. That’s definitely something to be grateful for.

There are all kinds of events going on for Women’s Day, many not on the day itself but over this past week instead, and even throughout the month of March.
