International Women's Day

Worldwide, 8th of March, 2010

International Women's Day (8th of March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.




The history of this celebration is not so long. However, this event is receiving more and more attention from the public, media and government as the time passes by. The first International Women's Day was observed on 28 February 1909 in the United States following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America. On the 8th od March, 1911, during the eve of World War I, women across Europe held peace rallies. As part of this movement brewing on the eve of World War I, Russian women observed their first International Women's Day on the last Sunday in February 1913.


What event will be taking place on the 8th of March, 2010? It depends on the country. However, each of them will definitely have something to offer. Business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women's craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and much more... There is no doubt that thousands of events will be held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements.


Started as a Socialist political event, the International Woman day has blended in the culture of many countries and nations. It is said: make a difference, think globally and act locally! Start your actions of the 8th of March, 2010! Celebrate achievements of women around the world without regard to their national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political differences.
