International Womens Day

International Women's Day falls on March 8 each year and celebrates women and their contribution to society.

Celebration\ Observance

People celebrate by getting together with family and friends and enjoy food and drink. Women are giving small gifts, cards, and flowers to show appreciation. This is a national holiday with some government offices and businesses closed.


International Women's Day became a holiday in 1918 after women's movements earlier were demanding a right to vote. Later in 1965 the holiday became a non- working holiday where many businesses were closed to honor the day.
