International (Working) Women's Day

International (Working) Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8thLady and sponsored worldwide by the United Nations.  The roots of this celebration go back to the late 1800's to early 1900s.  It grew out of the women's socialist movements and early women's trade union groups.

The first International Women's Day was held March 19, 1911.   Women socialists and trade unions held an earlier Women's Day on the last Sunday in February, 1908.  The event grew and has been celebrated annually since that time.  The focus is upon women workers, and advancing women's rights in the workforce, politics and society.

As we look back over the years there have been many, many strides forward.  And as we look forward there are still a great many strides that need to be made in women’s equality.

Good morning Conrad,

That is what it shows in the research.  Women have been fighting for equal rights for a very long time my friend.

I know a few women that wish things we back to when their Grandmothers lived.  But, they had a hard life also.
