International Women's Day History
International Women’s Day seeks to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of women throughout the world. This day aims to promote women’s equality by showing appreciation for women and by encouraging support for repressed women. Many organizations such as the United Nations use this day to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of ordinary women.
International Women's Day was initially promoted by the Socialist Party of America. In 1909, this day was declared in remembrance of a major strike by the International Ladies’ Garment Workers Union. This holiday is now recognized internationally and is an official national holiday for many countries. It is observed annually on March 8th.
