What is International Women’s Day?
Every year International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th. This springtime celebration began in New York City in 1909 as National Women’s Day, and it was created to recognize the continual advancements made by women at that time. As more progress was made in women’s rights, the holiday was spread internationally. In 1913, March 8th was officially declared as International Women’s Day which we are still celebrating today.

How is International Women’s Day Celebrated?
Every country celebrates International Women’s Day a little bit differently. In certain countries, such as China, Vietnam, Russia, and Bulgaria, the day is celebrated as a national holiday which, for some, means women get the day off work! In other countries, it is celebrated as a day that men take the time to honor the women in their lives, some of which give flowers and candy. Unlike Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, which is generally celebrated to show the love and appreciation for significant others and mothers, this day is about taking the time to recognize and appreciate the women in your life. This could mean an old teacher, coach or instructor. It could be one of your managers or mentors throughout your career. Whoever it might be, this is a great day to set aside to recognize how special and important they are in your life.
