8 March – International Women’s Day

 

International Women's Day - Elizabeth Place

Today is International Women’s Day! The first IWD celebration took place in 1911. More than one million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland attended rallies and events to campaign for women’s rights and to end gender discrimination.

Today, International Women’s Day gives us an opportunity to recognise all of the economic, political, and social achievements women have accomplished throughout history.
