About International Women's Day

International Women’s Day had its beginnings in Europe and the United States in the early 1900s. It pays tribute to the campaign by ordinary women for an improvement in working conditions, for equal wages and the right to vote.

International Women’s Day now unites many millions of women across the world and celebrates the contribution that women make to their workplaces, their families and their communities.
