In honor of International Women’s Day

Now why would someone, or a group, target a site such as this? It would be really interesting to find the sources and ask them. Are they funded by the wealth already going after women’s rights or just pranksters with a sick agenda? Something tells me there’s more to this than that.

March 8, 2011 – Hackers have brought down the International Women’s Day website today, the 100th anniversary of the event.

Three separate “denial of service” attacks have been directed at the internationalwomensday.com website since last night, the organisers confirmed.

“As the Centenary of International Women’s Day (IWD) struck in the Asia Pacific region, perpetrators commenced attacking the internationalwomensday.com website in an explicit attempt to prevent users from accessing the global hub for International Women’s Day,” a statement said.

Women’s groups, charities, governments, companies, schools, universities, the media and women around the world will take part in some 2,000 events around the world to mark the occasion today. Many other events were scheduled online.

Australian entrepreneur, campaigner and founder of the website, Glenda Stone, said: “We are monitoring the attack but women’s spirits will not be dampened by the malicious attempts of those who do not support International Women’s Day.

“Activity around the world will continue to mark the day’s significance as millions of women rise to campaign for equality and celebrate achievement.” {continued}

But there are plenty of ways to skirt the ill minded and give celebration, on it’s hundredth year anniversary, to the women.

Time magazine has a couple of those ways:
