The celebration of International Women's Day 2013 brings a spotlight to the work of the Global Women's Organization for Total Knowledge and the David Lynch Foundation Women's Initiative—promoting education for enlightenment, prevention-oriented health care, healing from the trauma of violence and war, and programmes to create permanent world peace.

As described on the United Nations website, ''International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.''

UN Women also explains that since its origins in early 20th century labour movements in North America and Europe, ''International Women's Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike.'' UN resolutions in support of this annual global event on 8 March have ''recognized the role of women in peace efforts and development''.

The 2013 theme for International Women's Day is: ''Time for action to end violence against women''.

The Global Women's Organization for Total Knowledge and the David Lynch Foundation Women's Initiative honour and support, and are helping to fulfil the laudable goals of International Women's Day and the organizations working on behalf of women and girls worldwide.

David Lynch Foundation Women's Initiative

The David Lynch Foundation Women's Initiative—Healing and Empowering Women and Girls—is providing at-risk women and girls in the U.S. and around the world the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique to heal from traumatic stress and find inner peace, creativity, and strength within themselves.

Click here to learn more about the David Lynch Foundation Women's Initiative, and its firstĀ annual public Forum on ''Women, Violence, and Meditation'', held almost exactly one year ago on 31 March 2012 in New York City. The Forum was attended by 175 government, philanthropic, and community leaders along with members of the general public.

Soledad O'Brien, award-winning CNN anchor, addressed the Forum: ''The David Lynch Foundation provides a tool to help women and girls overcome and heal the terrible traumas and abuse that grip their lives. And that tool is meditation.''

The Initiative's web page includes links to videos both of Forum highlights and of the complete panel of distinguished women doctors and advocates. View event program (PDF).
