  2. I just finished a post on my blog in honour of IWD: 100th International Women’s Day: Recognising Women. I’d love it if people would comment and tell me about women they find inspiring.

  3. Here’s a wonderful video of women with disabilities from all around the world – you can’t help but smile and want to sing and dance along with it!

  4. Maybe this link will work?

  5. Thanks bookgirl – only admins can embed videos in comments here, so I’ll do it now:

    At Mobility International USA’s 5th International Women’s Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD), disabled women celebrate our strength and solidarity, while generating plans to revolutionize the status of women with disabilities around the world in education, employment, HIV/AIDS, violence prevention, legal rights and political power.
    Our goal is to reach 10,000 views and to raise funds through donations for the next WILD program empowering women and girls with disabilities. Every donation large or small brings us closer to that goal!
