Open thread - Tuesday

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the International Women's Day. We came a long way and had to jump some hurdles, but we still have to overcome a few more.

Google is celebrating women today

Google marked International Women's Day Tuesday by dedicating its logo to the 100th anniversary of the celebration of women's achievements and by giving Google Maps' icon Pegman a female sidekick -- Pegwoman.

It's very nice to have our achievements celebrated in this way, but the conditions for women vary enormously around the globe. Many have achieved a lot, others still face a long struggle ahead of them.

Let's hope 2011 will bring meaningful changes to all women, everywhere.
