Ok, the first thing you should do is download and install the eGenix
BASE package . If you have a half-way decent operating system, you
can also install it via the package manager or ports system ;-)

from mx.DateTime import DateTimeFrom, now
dt = DateTimeFrom("08/05/2003")
if dt.iso_week == now().iso_week:
print "date is in current week"
You'll want to check if the definition of iso_week matches your
definition of 'week'.
