About International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first March 8th IWD gathering supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. Before this, the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom’s Suffragists and Suffragettes, and other groups campaigned for women’s equality.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization. For more information visit the website.
