International Women’s Day to be Celebrated

International Women’s Day, March 8 is a time to reflect on progress made, call for change, and to celebrates acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

International Women’s Day Held in Many Countrieswomensday

International Women’s Day came about following activities of labor movements at the turn of the 20th century in North America as well as across Europe. Since the beginning the movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women’s conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic arenas. February 28, 1909 marked the first celebration held in the United States. It was designated as such by the Socialist Party of America to honor the 1908 garment workers’ strike in New York where women protested against the poor working conditions they faced. The movement has not only grown in popularity, but it has also spread throughout the world where the day is celebrated.

Each year the celebration includes thousands of events. Some of these include global gatherings, conferences, awards, exhibitions, festivals, fun runs, corporate events, concert performances, speaking events, online digitial gatherings and more.

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. If you want additional information, please visit: www.internationalwomensday.com
