International Women’s Day is March 8th. If your geek group is doing anything for IWD, let us know in this thread, particularly if it’s online and open to participants around the world. (If it’s a meatspace event, please remember to be clear about which area!)
Also, if you write or find any interesting reflections on IWD, particularly if it strikes you as geeky, let us know for the next linkspam.

Alot of people don’t realise that the majority of people hungry around the world are women… and yet these women produce 60-80% of the food! The answer to hunger, I really believe lies with women. You can also send a message of solidarity to women across the world for International Women’s Day at http://www.wfp.org/women
Could you please do a piece encouraging woman students who can program to apply to Google Summer of Code?
