Today is also the day Mel Gibson has reached a plea deal for domestic battery.
He will appear in court on Friday. He is expected to receive no jail time but be ordered to continue counciling.
Which means his sentence for his 2006 drunk driving conviction ($1,300 fine, rehab, three years probation) would be stiffer than one he gets for assaulting not just another person, but the supposed love of his life at the time.
Happy International Women's Day! You've come a long way, baby!
