March 8th is International Women's Day (http://www.internationalwomensday.com/), an effort to mark the economic, political, and social achievement of women. From here at the Chandra blog, we'd like to extend that concept to include scientific achievements as well by highlighting our "Women in the High-Energy Universe" (http://chandra.harvard.edu/blog/taxonomy/term/19) series.
We will be looking to expand this section of the blog in the coming weeks with more interviews (March is also "Women in Science" month). In the meantime, you may want to take a moment to recognize the importance of what IWD is trying to promote in all aspects of our society.
