Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. Celebrated each year on March 8, IWD kicks off a month of marking the economic, political and social achievements of women. What began as demonstrations in the industrialized nations of the early 1900s to campaign for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination has grown to an international movement to establish those same rights for women in all countries.
