Happy International Women's Day


International Women's Day is celebrated on 8 March around the world. The United Nations began celebrating the day in 1977.


The theme this year is "Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world", highlighting the impact that girls and women worldwide had as health care workers, caregivers, innovators and community organizers during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The earliest Women's Day observance, called "National Woman's Day", was held on February 28, 1909, in New York City, organized by the Socialist Party of America.
