Do we need an "International Women's Day " ?

Mark Sandell Mark Sandell | 09:48 UK time, Thursday, 8 March 2007

Well, do we? . I know it's important and in many countries around the world it's being celebrated but is it a bit redundant now ?, and dare i say it , a bit patronising?
No? ok then, what about an International Women's Month or Year?
The details of the celebrations, protests and initiatives are here and millions are clearly taking part.

A few other thoughts...

The YouTube story caught my eye - the Greeks and Turks insulting each other through the site...ancd now the Turkish authorities have banned access to the site, a development some Turkish journalists say is "worrying" . Issues about censorship have dogged the country's attempts to join the EU.
