Indusladies International Women's Day Blog Contest
International Women's Day is coming up on March 8th. With us being a women's site, we want to celebrate it BIG and have an IMPACT! We are celebrating it with a blog contest focusing on the most important women's development issues.
How to participate?

It can be a story or an anecdote or a personal reflection or a policy recommendation or a public call to action. The intent is to make an impact on the reader.
