International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is recognized and celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women of all walks of life are acknowledged for their achievements. International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

The first celebration of International Women’s Day in the United States was on February 28, 1909. Remarkably, this day was Jean White Van Sinderen’s 20th birthday.

Since those early years, International Women’s Day has developed a new universal dimension. Cheers to all the remarkable women, at home and abroad, who help in creating a meaningful life for all people.
