International Women's Day

International Women's Day

Each year on March 8, International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world to “mark the economic, political, and social achievements of women”. Although this holiday is not so well-known here in the United States, countries such as Russia celebrate International Women’s Day by giving flowers to the important women in their lives, much like we would celebrate Mother’s day. The International Women’s Day website created the theme The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum to celebrate 2013.
