It's that time of year again...it's March 8th and time to celebrate women for International Women's Day! And, since we're all about making girls feel their best and look beautiful in their favorite dress at Rissy Roo's, of course we're very excited to celebrate this special day.
If you haven't heard about International Women's Day yet, annual on March 8th, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women's craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more. Many companies even join in on celebrating the event. Google has even been creating a Google Doodle over the past few years! And, in the United States, the whole month of March is celebrated as 'Women's History Month'.

Here's a little inspiration from one Roo Girl to another:
Madonna is a great inspiration for girls, so of course today is a perfect time to turn to her for inspiration. One of her most famous quotes is a great reminder to follow your dreams:
"I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams."
So, Happy International Women's Day 2014! Will you be doing something special to celebrate the day? Leave us a comment below!
