Muriel Duckworth was one year old when the first International Women's Day was observed in 1909. Today, in her 96th year, she will participate in a full range of IWD activities, culminating in a performance with the Raging Grannies as the festivities wind down. Later in the week, she will travel to Mount Allison University where she will be a guest speaker. As always, her focus as a feminist will be on peace and on women's rights.

Muriel once told me that anything worth doing was worth doing badly. It changed my life. I love her.
