There is a dedicated International Women's Day web-site - click here to find information on the day, a calendar of events where you can upload information on events you organise in your country, and resources - e.g. posters - that you can download and print out. One warning for people with a slow internet connection: animated advertisement banners may slow you down - if you don't need the pictures, better set your browser not to download images. And it may be a good idea to write to the corporate sponsors and find out whether they can support your work on women's rights! ;-)

During a recent DR Congo trip, I was asked to put together basic information as to how to mobilise donor funds for organisations working on women's rights. I wrote a short guide - in French - and appended to it a list of relevant donor websites I put together in 2011. That list is in English. If you want to take a peek, go to the column to the left and click on "en francais - Ressources, Bailleurs". Scroll to the bottom if you are interested in the list only. Bonne chance!
