Good Morning All,

For gender equity, I would like to wish a great Women's Day to all GAMCHIX

As a reminder, below are the milestones of this ongoing struggle for a more
equitable society.

What a long way since 1910!

And there is still some way to go before equality becomes reality.

The Internet and its affordable access to EVERYONE are the guarantee of a
more equitable society.

So let's continue celebrating March 8th.
