What is International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality.
It has been observed since the early 1900s and is now recognized each year on March 8. Is is not affiliated with any one group, but brings together governments, women’s organisations, corporations and charities.
What’s happening around the world?
Spurred on by their success in January, the organisers of the Women’s March on Washington have launched a new campaign: A Day Without Women. They are encouraging women in the USA and worldwide to strike from work on 8 March in protest at the economic inequality, prejudice and insecurity faced by women in the workplace. They are also encouraging women to wear red to show their solidarity with the movement.
