By Research & Education Director Joyce Robinson 

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8, in honor of women’s social, economic, cultural and political achievements. International Women’s Day was first celebrated in North America and Europe in the early 1900s. Since those years, the movement has been strengthened by United Nations’ (UN) women’s conferences designed to build support for women’s rights and equality.
