International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on March 8 and is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
The first IWD was held on 19 March 1911 in Germany, Austria, Denmark and some other European countries. This date was chosen by German women because on that date in 1848 the Prussian King faced an armed uprising; he had promised many reforms, including votes for women.
To ensure you are part of IWD 2020 activities check the calendar and register to attend one of the many events being held around the Territory.
Happy International Women’s Day 2020!
