We celebrate International Women's Day every March 8th In honor of women's social, economic, cultural, and political achievements. It has been in observance for over a century, with the first official celebration in 1911. The creation of International Women's Day resulted from the suffrage movement at the beginning of the 20th century. Women marched in New York City, in 1908, demanding shorter hours, better pay, and the right to vote for women. The first National Women's Day in the United States was observed on February 28th of the following year. A conference on women's rights and suffrage took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, in the year 1910, bringing together over 100 women from 17 countries.
To honor women's achievements and promote gender equality a day was set aside and since then, International Women's Day is celebrated globally through events and activities to raise awareness about women's issues and highlight the contributions of women in various fields. The day also serves as a reminder that gender inequality still exists, and much work is yet to be done to ensure that women have equal rights and opportunities.
