International Women's Day 2008 is coming up this week, on March 8.

Today's women are independent, career-oriented, strong-willed and capable.

They balance both boardrooms and their home-life with ease, juggling schedules, meeting deadlines and fulfilling all their responsibilities as corporate women.

They seem to do it all and more and they pull it off with flair.

So we want to ask you, dear readers -- if women are considered equals, do you think a day is needed to celebrate their gender?

If equality of the sexes is desirable, should there be a 'Women's Day' at all?

Tell us what you think! Post your experiences, advice and opinions in this regard on the message board below; the best responses will be published later in the week, right here on!
