The Rundown - Special International Women's Day Edition

Oh, you thought you'd already seen The Rundown today, huh? Well. Sure. That's true. But you didn't think we forgot about International Women's Day did you? 

Nope, it's just that all of the good stories this week about the power of women's involvements and investments usually get shared on the day itself, so we needed to be patient and and read all the ones we could get our hands on in order to share the best of the best with you later in the day. 

Oh yes, Team Rhinocorn is crafty! And extremely pro-women. So here is the best of the best we got to read today -- and there were many to choose from.
