International Women’s Day-March 8th
What is International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th of every year. It is an occasion marked by women’s groups around the world. This date is also
commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women all over the world, often divided by national
boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic, and political differences, come together to celebrate their day, they can look back to a
tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace, and development. Everyone of us has at least one woman to be
thankful with. And since women are the majority on Earth, they do deserve a big celebration, especially on March 8th: International Women’s Day.
