International Women's Day

International Women’s Day on 8 March is a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of the past, present and future.

Its origins are rooted in the struggle for women’s suffrage and equal rights. It has been celebrated worldwide since 1911.

The 2017 theme is #BeBoldForChange.
