Yesterday, 8 March, was International Women’s Day. I hope many of you enjoyed and celebrated it. A ton of events took place yesterday and throughout the month of March, check out the official website for information.

As it’s also International Year of Astronomy, IWD marked the launch date of one of the IYA’s cornerstone project, She is an Astronomer. The project aims to bring female astronomers into the spotlight, encourage more girls and women to get involved in astronomy, and to remove misconceptions about gender in this great science.

An extra special shout out to fellow women astronomy and space bloggers, Amanda, Nicole, Emily, Pamela, all the women blogging in Cosmic Diary and Cosmic Variance and all the women scientists out there on the internet. And check out an exciting new blog carnival on Diversity in Science.
