International Women’s Day – 8th March 2019
International Women’s Day is celebrated on the 8th of March every year. The origin dates back to 1909. The Socialist Party of America organised a women’s day which was such a success. A decision was made to make it an annual event.
In 1917 the Soviet Russian women gained suffrage and this changed many things. By 1975 it was adopted by the United Nations.
