Happy International Women's Day

Tomorrow, March Eighth is International Women's Day. It isn't so much a big deal here in Ghana unlike in Kyrgyzstan where it is a huge deal. Even though the holiday was originally an American one it seems to have been most institutionalized in the USSR and other formerly socialist countries. In those states it functions as a combination of Valentines Day and Mothers' Day. Everywhere else the holiday seems to have failed to take any roots.
