International Women’s Day

Mar 8, 2011 by

Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. First celebrated in 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, International Women's Day is now an official holiday in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China, Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. But this day dedicated to celebrating women's contributions to society is not officially recognized as a holiday by the United States government. 

Paging the 92 women of the U.S. House and Senate . . . 

A lack of legal recognition won't stop us from celebrating the day at MOMocrats, though. In honor of International Women's Day, we offer you a list of awesome political blogs written by women whom we think you should be reading in addition to us:

    The enormous amount of thoughtful, funny and timely content could easily keep me glued in this chair for hours. Mail piles up, floors might stay sticky, but I haven't yet missed my turn at carpool.
