This year to celebrate the centenary of International Women's Day on March 8, 2011, Google is collaborating with Women for Women International on their "Join me on the Bridge" campaign. Originally conceived of by women from Rwanda and Congo as a sign of solidarity between women in two conflict-ridden countries, last year's campaign brought together thousands of women and men at more than 100 bridge events on four continents.
To attend a bridge event, check out the map below to see all the events that've already been planned. Or you can use ;event toolkit to plan your own event on the bridge of your choice. You'll see that there're two kinds of events--physical and online; if you're not able to attend a bridge event in person on March 8, you can lend your support online by virtually attending an event via Street View in Google Maps.
