#DearMe, Make It Happen

That’s this year’s 2015 International Women’s Day theme: Make It Happen. Interesting.

So, are you making it happen? Your relationship(s)? Your love and sex life? Truly respecting and loving yourself? How’s it going?

NATO has message for you this year. It’s delivered in this seriously deadpan monotone voice by the NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security. You gotta have women on board if you want peace, right?

Did you know women like to work at Enterprise Rental car? I didn’t.  IWD (yeah – short for International Women’s Day) has a list of places women like to work  – like Enterprise Rental Car and Vodaphone.  Its on their website and put together by Where Women Work . Don’t know how this compares to Working Mother’s List besides being international vs US-focused.

In case you missed it, this year we’re supposed to write a letter to our younger selves. YouTube did a cute ad for it. Online stars Issa Rae and Chescaleigh are the chocolate drops in this upbeat video.

To start your celebration off right, take a look at Chescaleigh’s #DearMe video by Chescaleigh to Young Francesca. Heart-felt and inspiring.
