It's the 100th anniversary of International Women's History Day, begun in Europe in 1911.

What women inspire you today? 

Today's the day to SHOUT OUT She Writers and women who inspire you! Let's celebrate this day by promoting the *&%$ out of women writers, creators, directors and story-tellers. You can update your status on SW, Facebook, and tweet #SWSO (She Writes Shout Out) all over the web. 

Change comes when we speak up, so let's get to it! Do tell, what are doing today to promote women who write?
