Monday, March 06-08 is International Women's Day
(IWD )! The organization will be celebrating its 110th year!
IWD grew out of efforts in the early 20th century to promote women’s rights, especially suffrage. In its campaign for female enfranchisement, the Socialist Party of America in 1909 held the first National Woman’s Day, which was highlighted by mass meetings across the United States; the day was observed until 1913.
It has since grown into a global celebration! All Women are called to use their intellectual, nurturing, and creative skills to move the world from where it is now to where we believe it can be in 2030. IWD is an annual catalyst.
As a participant in the IWD events, you will be aligning with the Global Women’s Movement. Women worldwide will see you as one who cares about the well-being of women; someone who wants what they want – a more prosperous and peaceful world.
