About International Women’ s Day
The annual celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8 serves as a focal point for the women’s rights movement and raises awareness of problems including gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.
The holiday is observed by the UN in support of a specific campaign, topic, or idea related to women’s rights. International Women’s Day is observed with protests and calls for radical change in some regions of the world, while in others, especially in the West, it is mostly social and focuses on a celebration of womanhood.
