Check out the Google Doodle video celebrating International Women’s Day, which is marked each year on March 8.
International Women’s Day, which was first held in Chicago on May 3, 1908, honors respect, love and appreciation of women. It is celebrated in countries around the world, and this year, the United Nations’ theme for the day is “Equality for Women is Progress for All.” You can read the message by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon here, originally posted on the IWD 2014 website.

Retard. The word stings of ignorance and disgust. But if the Spread the Word to End the Word Campaign succeeds, you’ll never have to hear it (and hopefully never say it) again.
It’s a derisive term used interchangeably with “idiot” and is especially hurtful when referencing someone who is actually intellectually disabled. It’s also short for “retarded” or “mentally retarded,” terms often used to describe developmentally disabled people. But it’s been misappropriated into a word that hurts them and their loved ones.
