The International Women's Day (IWD) also known as the United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace, is a global day annually held on 8 March to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women throughout history and across nations. This century old event only received global attention in 1975 when the UN called for an International Women's Year, convening the first conference on women and with the UN General Assembly inviting Member States to proclaim 8 March as the “UN Day for Women's Rights and International Peace” in 1977.
