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.
