Today, the whole world is celebrating International Women’s Day for the 101st time. The 1st Women’s Day was celebrated on March 19th, 1911. The whole idea to have a day dedicated to women was first established in Copenhagen in 1910 by Clara Zetkin. March 8th was chosen and kept as the official International Women’s Day in 1913. This day was officially recognized as an International holiday by United Nations in 1975.
Every year a different theme is dedicated for Women’s Day by various organizations and the UN. This year the theme is to “Empower Rural Women – End Hunger and Poverty”. Last year’s theme was “Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathways to decent work for women.”
Below is an Infographic which tells the unique story of “The Reality of Her Day, Everyday” from the United Nations Foundation
