The month of March starts with a celebration close to our hearts – International Women's Day. It is an important day, celebrated globally on March 8th every year, to celebrate the achievements of women around us in all aspects of their lives.

History of International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900’s, during times of expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world. The event gained momentum globally as women advocated for equal rights, suffrage, and better working conditions. The United Nations officially recognized March 8 as International Women's Day, cementing its place as a global occasion to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women. Today, International Women's Day continues to serve as a platform for promoting gender equality, acknowledging women's contributions, and advocating for the rights and opportunities they rightfully deserve.
