Happy International Women's Day!
International Women's Day falls on March 8th, and it's a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women - as mentioned by the International Women’s Day website.
There is no force more powerful than a woman's determination to rise.
While we celebrate women's achievements and increase visibility, we wish for women worldwide to enrich their lives with joy, purpose, and positivity. Make this day your day and do what you can, to truly make a positive difference for women!
When was International Women’s Day first celebrated?
The day was born out of the women’s rights movement in industrializing countries during the early 1900s.
The Socialist Party of America first declared National Women’s Day in 1909. It would be observed on the last Sunday of February until 1913. In 1910, at the second International Conference of Working Women, a gathering of women from activist and political organizations in Copenhagen, the idea of an International Women’s Day was proposed and approved.
As per UsToday.com The day would be observed for the first time the following year on March 19, 1911, in several European countries. The celebrations included rallies and events calling for women’s right to vote and an end to gender discrimination.
March 8 has been the fixed date for International Women’s Day since 1914, when the day was moved to be in line with Russian women who celebrated the day on February 23 on the Gregorian calendar.
This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BreakTheBias and asks the world to call out instances of bias against women in the workplace, at school, and at home.
