The theme of International Women's Day this year is "Take action to end impunity for violence against women and girls."

My article [url=""]Violence Against Women in the Middle East[/url] looks at this goal and discusses a recent study on violence against girls and women in Syria.

Also, check out our Meditation editor's article - Women Meditating for World Peace - International Women's Day. I don't know about anyone else, but after reading about violence, I am ready for some meditation for peace!

Have a safe and peaceful International Women's Day!
