Women's Day For Beginners

Today is 

{In fact, it is the 100th anniversary of the holiday.}

I've really only seen this holiday celebrated in Europe,
but I think it's time the US got in on the celebration.

So if you are new to the holiday,
let me give you a few easy hints 
for getting in the spirit
of this fine day.

I'll be flexing my right to vote by picking a movie for tonight
Meet up with friend and chat up way to get involved with women's voting rights

Eat some girl food, like Ina Garten's curried pasta.

Flex the skills that your mama gave ya. Mine isn't baking, but I'm trying hard to master it.

Today is a celebration of the women who fought for women's voting rights.
This isn't a right for all women in the world...

"The victims of injustice in our world
do not need our spasm of passion;
they need our long obedience in the same direction.
They need our legs and lungs of endurance."

Our generation can be the generation
that changes future of so many.

So enjoy the day, 
and join the fight!

  1. Your celebration sounds just about perfect. Wish this was celebrated in the US, it sounds like a pretty perfect today. As for exercising your right to vote... you chose the exact same movie I would've picked! Just found out the boyfriend has never seen it!!!

  2. Happy Women's Day, sweetie! I'm really just hearing about this holiday for the first time this year. It definitely needs to be celebrated here. I'm going out to dinner with girlfriends today and we'll be sure to celebrate :) xoxo

  3. I wish I was going out for cocktails with my ladies! Cheers to the best gender :)

  4. Happy WD to you lovely- I think you've nailed down a perfect way to celebrate- it's insane but I've never seen the Sound of Music from start to finish- a glass of some gorgeous cocktail and that movie sounds pretty perfect!

  5. You should check out the video spot Dame Judi and Daniel Craig did for the day. Sobering statistics.

  6. happy ladies day today! hooray! i totally baked peanut butter kiss cookies last night, so i will be eating those tonight :) xoxo jcd

  7. gloria steinem was on bill maher this past week and he was saying that there hasn't been a president since Kennedy asked Elanore Roosevelt to speak about (international) Women's day. kind of sad, right? i think it needs a revival for sure. we get paid .80 on the dollar and don't even get a day for celebration? boo. enjoy your movie tonight!! good way to celebrate.

  8. the sound of music is the best movie ever!
    have a great day
    oxo em

  9. Cheers to International Women's Day! Shouldn't every day be women's day? :)

  10. The U.S. really needs to get with the program! I have never heard of this, but I guess I'm already celebrating it today. I met a friend for coffee this morning and getting a manicure later today, so I'd say I'm off to a good start!

  11. cheers to IWS and all women should unite and vote and flex muscles...

  12. Yay for the ladies! Perfect celebration suggestions!

  13. Inga Garten has the best recipes. That pasta looks awesome. I thought every day was Women's Day!! xo

  14. I have NEVER heard of this holiday so a warm thank you for introducing it! Love the movie pick, it has always been a favorite.


    I remember the day I turned 17 I was secretly (because when you are a teenager it's probably not cool to be obsessed with the sound of music...) devastated because the song no longer applied to me :)Haha.
