International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This glorious day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women's Day has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported and attended by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively worldwide.
