What is International Women’s Day?

International Women’s Day is a day to honour women’s achievements socially, politically, economically and culturally. Originating in the 1900’s IWD is a day that brings a call to action to various causes and advocates for equality. But most importantly IWD is a day to celebrate women from all over the world.
