International Women's Day is celebrated every year on March 8. International Women's Day has been observed since 1909 in the United States. After a while, the people of United States stopped celebrating this holiday. In the 1920s, a Soviet Union, and then some other Communist countries like China and Cuba, started celebrating this day as a holiday for women and world peace. Since then the holiday has become more and more popular around the world.

Women's Day is observed like Mother's Day, where children give small gifts to their mothers and grandmothers. In some countries, women get a half day off work. Often, schools will have a celebration where students will honor their teachers.

Every 8 March International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrates the achievements of women of past and present throughout the world. The first International Women’s Day was run in 1911 in some European countries such as Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. More than one million women and men rallied to campaign for women’s rights to work, vote, education access, equality and end discrimination. By 1975, IWD was officially recognised by the United Nations and has continued to gain international recognition. In some places like China, Afghanistan, Russia and Burkina Faso, IWD is a national holiday. This day is also an occasion to inspire commitment to the future challenges that women face in making further progress.
