International Women’s Day on twitter and elsewhere


It’s International Women’s Day! A day celebrated worldwide to honor women’s achievements and progress throughout history and today. I have not heard of a specific event celebrating women in Laredo but we are only a few keystrokes away from connecting with those supporting the celebration. On Twitter, you can check out #womensday (or follow @womensday linked to the hub for International Women’s Day activities) or a bit more locally, you can participate in a Twitter party hosted by Las Comadres de las Americas. This was their invitation to join other Latinas at 1:00pm today.

LC tweetchat

“Count on Me: Tales of Sisterhoods and Fierce Friendships” is a recently published anthology by Las Comadres Para Las Americas.

In the book, beloved bestselling Latino authors share moving personal stories of the many ways that sisterly bonds have powerfully impacted their lives.

What would you do, where would you be, without your Comadres?

Join us for a special Tweet chat on International Women’s Day to celebrate our comadres and the stories about them. (If you haven’t yet ordered your book, visit – you can get a hard copy or a digital version)

Friday, March 8
11 am PST / 1 pm CST / 2 pm EST
Hosted by Alexandra M. Landeros @UndercoverMexi

    It’s a great day to send a letter to those women in your life who made a difference and also to those just starting their journeys that may need a little boost of support. Thank you for all you do to encourage women and girls, Que Fregados!

    A note from a man; good for you all……I have worked for many women throughout my lifetime, and never found a woman boss to be any different than the male bosses. The only equality issue I have is the recent decision to allow women into designated combat roles. Not because they may not be capable, but because of the unintended consequences that could arise if the draft were ever re implemented. The drafting of the nations daughters and future mothers bothers me. Maybe it should not, but it does.

    Any way, happy Women’s Day
