Happy Women's Day

I don't think I'm going to be able to do much blogging in the next couple of days, so I have been doing some guest-blogging to make sure you have lots to read from today through Monday.

And if you have a minute or two, please leave a comment on the guest blogs I'm referring you to:

Many thanks to Gaynor and Ali, (of TAVASA) and Laurakim (of Female2Female) for inviting me. Much appreciated.

And please visit the OneLove Campaign web site to check out what's rocking there. Interesting posts include:

And to my South African readers, enjoy Happy Women's Day and enjoy the long weekend.

You are fortunate to have a
Woman's Day. I don't know of one here in the U.S. Have a good one.

Yes, we're very fortunate BeckyJoie. FYI, the holiday celebrates and reflect on the status of women today and the advances made since march 1956 when South African women organised one of the largest and most successful protests in the country's history.
