International Women’s Day – #makeithappen

In case you didn’t know, March is ‘International Women’s History Month‘, and March 8 happened to be International Women’s Day. The theme for this year’s IWD is ‘Make it happen!’ – which is absolutely speaking to the maker in every woman. This post links to some of the resources, blogs, and articles celebrating International Women’s History Month, International Women’s Day, and women makers.
