  • International Women’s Day
    International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8th around the world. It is an observance to celebrate women’s rights and equality. International Women’s Day  has been observed since the early 1900’s. The first recognition of IWD was in 1909 on  February 28. Then in 1910 a second International Conference of Working Women was held in Copenhagen. Clara Zetkin, who was the Leader of the ‘Women’s Office’ for the Social Democratic Party in Germany put forth the idea of an International Women’s Day. She proposed that every year in every country there should be a celebration on the same day around the world.  The conference of over 100 women from 17 countries greeted Zetkin’s suggestion with unanimous approval and thus International Women’s Day was the result.  Here is a great article about the history of International Women’s Day.
