March 8 – International Women’s Day

Today is an International Women’s Day. It is an occasion marked by women’s groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday.

I have been posting some of my meatless recipes during this past year, so if you are searching for ideas, here are the links to these posts:
