What is International Women’s Day?

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Moreover, the day marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

The first International Women’s Day was observed on February 28, 1909, in New York City. In 1910, an international conference of working women in Copenhagen established a date for the observance of International Women’s Day – March 19. However, it wasn’t until 1975 that the United Nations officially recognized March 8th as International Women’s Day.

Every year there are more events organized globally to mark IWD than any other day dedicated to celebrating women. Again, this demonstrates just how important IWD is as we continue striving for gender parity across the world.
