International Women’s Day brings attention to and celebrates the social, political, economic and cultural issues that are faced by women every day. Ultimately, it advocates for the advancement of women in all those areas.
International Women’s Day was first celebrated on March 19, 1911. A million women and men rallied in support of women’s rights on that first International Women’s Day. The idea of an International Women’s Day was inspired by America’s National Women’s Day, February 28, 1909, declared by the Socialist Party of America. During these times, Women’s Day was connected with working women’s rights.
The following year, the Socialist International met in Denmark approved the idea of an International Women’s Day. And so the next year, the first International Women’s Day—or as it was first called, International Working Women’s Day—was celebrated with rallies in Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Celebrations often included marches and other demonstrations.
