8th of March - International Women's Day

International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on 8 March around the world. It is a day of the movement for women's rights. After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women's Day in New York City on 28 February 1909, German delegates Clara Zetkin, K├Ąte Duncker, Paula Thiede and others proposed at the 1910 International Socialist Woman's Conference that "a special Women's Day" be organized annually.After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there.The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted by the feminist movement in about 1967. The United Nations began celebrating the day in 1977.
