It’s International Women’s Day and we begin with an image of a schoolgirl in southern India practicing Vietnam Vovinam martial arts as part of the worldwide event. In Manila, Filipino women march to mark the day and to support the passage of the Reproductive Health Bill, a measure being blocked by the politically influential Roman Catholic church.

In the Spanish village of Tolox, a man covers a woman entirely with talcum powder, a traditional, long-since-abandoned method of courtship, during the Dia de los Polvos festival; while in Berlin, counterpointing violent unrest with value for money, the Libyan booth is optimistically readied for the opening of the International Tourism Industry Fair.

A bizarre and puzzling phenomenon surfaces in the waters off the Southern California city of Redondo Beach where millions of dead fish, apparent victims of asphyxiation, fill the harbor.

With the completion of space shuttle Discovery’s final mission and with home beckoning, we have an image of the International Space Station against a dramatic backdrop of planet Earth as seen from NASA’s most traveled space vehicle.

This is just a glimpse of our world in pictures today; we have many more images for you to explore.

We had the space.
