March 8th is International Women’s Day!!!!!! International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.However, great improvements have been made. We have female astronauts, prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, and women have real choices. For the past few years the nature of IWD (International Women’s Day) has moved from being a reminder about the negatives to a celebration of the positives.
On March 8, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatrics performances, fashion parades and more.
