Daniel Craig dresses in drag for International Women's Day

While watching James Bond's "Casino Royale," did you ever stop and think, "Wow, Daniel Craig would look really good as a woman."

Me either.

But if you had, well, here's your chance to find out:

He's much better looking in his natural, manly state, but I'm impressed with his statement.

Craig dons the drag for a good cause: women's equality.

Today is International Women's Day — in fact, it's the day's 100th anniversary. Tons of information can be found at the UK-based EQUALS? website, which sponsored Craig's video.

Here's an excerpt from the site:

International Women's Day (March 8) is a big, beautiful celebration of women's strengths and achievements. ... But whilst it's a day of celebration, it's also a rallying cry. It's a time to ask ourselves big, important questions about how a woman's life really compares to that of a man's. And not just here; but all around the world. Because although impressive life-changing advances have been made since that momentous day in 1911, there's still quite a way to go.

As you go through the pages of the site, you'll notice people — women and men — holding conversation bubbles with statements describing "What would equality look like to you?"

I am a woman, but I wouldn't call myself a feminist, and while I believe that all people should be treated with respect, I also believe there are fundamental differences between women and men and those differences should be celebrated.

Does that make equality impossible? Or is that the very definition of equality? I don't know the answers to these questions.

But if you have an idea, a camera and an artistic eye, you can make your own statement.

EQUALS is hosting a film competition where people are encouraged to submit a video expressing how we'll know when men and women are equal and what equality means. Films should be 60 seconds long and submitted by midnight GMT April 7. It's free to enter and the contest is open to all ages all over the world. The grand prize is an iTunes gift card.

Good luck!
