International Women's Day

International Women's Day or World Women's Day is celebrated by women's organisations worldwide on 8 March.

Women gathered to mark the first Women's Day in 1911 with demonstrations and meetings in Denmark, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and in the USA. The focus then was on the demand for women to gain the right to vote.
Since then, each year's demands have reflected the individual country's current political situation.
