March 8, 2024 all-day

International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8th, is a global event that recognizes the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women while advocating for gender equality.

International Women’s Day has its roots in the early 20th century, when women’s rights activists advocated for equal opportunities, including the right to vote, work, and hold public office. The first National Women’s Day was observed in the United States on February 28, 1909, and later, it transformed into an international event. In 1975, the United Nations officially recognised International Women’s Day, making it a global occasion for raising awareness and promoting gender equality.
