Happy International Women's Day! Take a moment to reflect and appreciate all the incredible women around the world and in your life! Check out how the day is being celebrated around the globe:
Though there is some conflict regarding the origin of International Women's Day, scholars generally associate it with the 1907 march of New York's textile workers. The march brought some 15,000 women to the streets from the needle and textile industry to demand better working conditions and shorter hours. International Women's Day was formally recognized by the United Nations in 1975 and is now celebrated in over 140 countries. We have collected some of the thought provoking comic strips to help commemorate the day while taking the time to remind us of the importance of making comics more inclusive and representative of the world around us.
March 8th is International Women's Day, a day to celebrate the world's she-roes and their strength in enduring choruses of "What about International Men's Day?" (yes, it exists, it's November 19th, now step aside and let women have a full 24 hours).

The early clip and images posted by King on Instagram showed the CBS host calmly and persistently attempting to get answers from Kelly, in spite of his outbursts. People on twitter praised her composure.

One of Nathan's students, Wayne Hayer, recently showed up to lecture with his five-month-old daughter, Assata, because he was unable to find a babysitter and didn't want to miss class. The professor graciously offered to hold the little girl so Hayer would be able to take notes.
