What is International Women’s Day? Why Do We Celebrate It?

International Women’s Day is a global holiday that is celebrated on March 8th every year. The day is dedicated to celebrating women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements and promoting gender equality. It is also a time to raise awareness about women’s challenges and advocate for women’s rights.

The origins of International Women’s Day can be traced back to the early 1900s when women in many parts of the world were fighting for suffrage and better working conditions. The first National Women’s Day was observed in the United States on February 28, 1909, and the first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1911.

Today, International Women’s Day is recognized as a public holiday in some countries, and it is marked by various events, including rallies, conferences, and cultural events. The day is also a time to honor the achievements of women who have made a significant contribution to their communities and society as a whole.
