March 8 is International Women's Day, a major holiday celebrated by women's organizations
around the world. The idea for a Women's Day has been around since the 20th century, but
it wasn't until 1908 that the first Women's Day was held in the United States. In 1911, the first
International Women's Day was held in Germany, Austria, Denmark and several other countries
in Europe. Since then, the day has been celebrated as a national holiday in many countries.
It marks the achievements of women economically, socially, culturally and politically. Women
from all over the world celebrate this important day. Because it represents fairness, justice,
peace and development.
