One for the ladies…International Women’s Day


womens day

Not many people know that Women's Day - which we now celebrate every spring on the March 8th - was originally called International Working Women's Day.

The first National Women's Day was celebrated in 1910 in the United States. It focused on promoting equal rights, including suffrage, for women across the world. Although influenced by communist ideology, the celebration stood the test of time and irrespective of political or geographical coordinates is now a growing part of popular culture.
