International Women’s Day is an occasion marked by women’s groups around the world. Since its birth in the early socialist movement during the First World War, recognition of the day has grown. The United Nations officially declared 1975 as International Women’s Year. In 1977, the United Nations solidified March 8th as the day to celebrate International Women’s day worldwide. Each year thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements.
