International Widows' Day History
International Widows' Day serves to recognize widows and their unique situations worldwide. Widows are women whose husbands have died. After their husbands have passed, many widows are forced to fight for their human rights and overcome many obstacles to ensure their social and economic status. According to the United Nations there are about 245 million widows worldwide. Of which many live in extreme poverty and are subject to violence.
International Widows' Day was declared by the United Nations and first celebrated on June 23, 2011, in an effort empower widows and help them to regain their rights, which have long been ignored and violated.
