Happy International Women's Day! Read on to learn about the amazing impact women have on the world.
Girl power! That's right – say it loud and proud.
Today, March 8, marks the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. President Obama even recognized the power of women by officially declaring March as Women's History Month (he is married to a strong woman, after all!)
"International Women's Day is a chance to pay tribute to ordinary women throughout the world and is rooted in women's centuries-old struggle to participate in society on an equal footing with men," Obama wrote in his proclamation.
"This day reminds us that, while enormous progress has been made, there is still work to be done before women achieve true parity."

Don't worry, though – here are a few facts you can tweet on International Women's Day.
