Gifts and Flowers for International Women's Day
March 8 is International Women's Day. This year's theme: "Pledge for Parity."
International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. It also honours the important work of the Suffragettes who campaigned for a woman's right to vote. It is a day that also reminds us of inequities still to be addressed.
The first International Women's Day event was held in 1911. Today, in some countries such as China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday.
"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights" Gloria Steinem
