About International Women's Day

International Women’s Day had its beginnings in Europe and the United States in the early 1900s. International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women campaigning for an improvement in the very poor working conditions that women suffered, equal wages and votes for women.

International Women’s Day, held annually on March 8, now unites many millions of women across the world. Ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences are put aside to celebrate this important date, which represents equality, justice, peace, development and participation in political and economic processes.
