The International Women’s Day (IWD) was a result of spirited social movements across the world in the last century. Women bravely demonstrated on the streets regarding labor rights, voting privileges, and overall gender equality. Many countries started celebrating IWD on March 8th in the early 1900s. However, United Nations adopted IWD in 1975, which made it into a global holiday.
Nowadays, IWD is a symbol of hope and empowerment for women rights. The struggle for equal rights and protection for women continues, but IWD stands as a reminder that ALL women are strong, resilient, and deserving of fundamental human rights.
Cultural Diversity and Sustainable Development for Peace (CD4Peace) proudly celebrates IWD and works towards uplifting women in our society.
