Hello, it is the 100th International Women's Day today! To help you get ready, I made a handy checklist on Autostraddle.com for you, but I also decided to highlight some of the stuff here. GET CELEBRATING ALREADY!

Find out if there’s an official IWD event in or near your city online. The theme this year is “Access to Education, Training, Science, and Technology.”

Stand with Planned Parenthood

+ Fight back against street harassment in your neighborhood by supporting your local Hollaback! network. Hollaback! began in New York and is now active across the globe, and they’re totally badass. For IWD, they’re collecting stories about street harassment, which play a large role in proving its detriment.

+ Read Being Female (I am swooning, I love you Eileen) and the HU Queer Zine… again.

+ Also, read this Guardian article about how gender equality reduces world hunger.

And remember: it is International Women's Day, and you are someone I am celebrating. Go change the world and stuff!
