International Women’s Day – Celebrating Women!

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY is a global event that celebrates women’s achievements, without regard to divisions – from the political and business to social. The first observance of a Women's Day was held on February 28, 1909 in New York and we have celebrated it since in a variety of ways.

March 8 became a national holiday in Russia after women gained suffrage there in 1917. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations. In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women's rights and world peace.
