International Women’s Day has a long history dating back more than 100 years. In 1908, when 15,000 women protested in
New York City demanding shorter working hours, better pay and the voting rights. A year later, on 28th February
1909, the Socialist Party of America celebrated the first National Woman's Day.
The idea of having an international day for women was suggested by Clara Zetkin – a German activist for women’s
rights in 1910 at an International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen. There were 100 women from many
countries around the world had agreed on her suggestion in that conference. A year later, in 1911, 8th of March was
first celebrated in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. In 1917, Russian women protested for ‘Bread and
Peace’ on 8th of March (on the Gregorian calendar) in the capital of the Russian Empire, Petrograd. This later
marked the beginning of the February Revolution and the October Revolution made up the Russian Revolution.
In 1975, the United Nations officially recognized 8th of March as the International Women’s Day making the day
celebrated annually worldwide to honor the achievements of women, promote women rights as well as gender parity.
