International Women’s Day March 8

Americans are encouraged to set aside a few minutes on March 8 to mentally unite in our intention to further world progress and peace in celebration of International Women’s Day. Marked annually by women’s groups around the world since 1909, the United Nations first designated this date as the official international holiday in a 1975 resolution proclaiming United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace. The occasion recognizes that securing full enjoyment of fundamental human rights and freedoms requires the active participation, equality and development of women. It also acknowledges women’s vital contributions in these areas. 

International Women’s Day addresses the centuries-old struggle of women eager to participate in society on an equal footing with men. It’s a time to reflect upon advancements, call for helpful changes and celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of women’s rights.
