Twitter Blog: Honoring Women Everywhere

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

When American men went off to war in the 1940’s, women stepped up to the plate and kept the factories running. When women weren’t legally allowed to join trade organizations in Germany around 1850, they set off to start their own.

Today is the 100-year anniversary of International Women’s Day, so we want to highlight some of the incredible women on Twitter who are sharing their voices with the world. A list of 30 amazing women–from politicians to comedians, journalists, business leaders, and artists–can be found on this Staff Picks list within our Browse Interests section. Check it out.
