International Women's day was introduced in the 1900's and is still being celebrated all over the world.
Numerous countries hold a national holiday on this day and men all over the globe celebrate the women in their lives by honouring them with gifts or bunches of flowers!
International Women's day is celebrated on the 8th of March each year and hundreds of events are organised all over the world to make this date a day of celebration and inspiration for the world's women.
However women are still fighting for equality in a man's world and although great progress has been made in many western countries since the 1900's, women are still paid less , have fewer representatives in business, science and politics and are still fighting for basic human rights and freedom in many counties around the world. This year has opened up a new era with the shift of opinion following the " times up " and " #Me too" movements . Hollywood stars have spoken out about sexual misconduct in the work place and women all over the globe are not only celebrating today, but are out on the streets marching and protesting against global inequality.
Where ever you are, you can help to make this day special for the women in your life. As a women you can help, support and never give up the fight for equality, striving to make the world a better place for girls to grow up in tomorrow.
Happy International Women's Day.
