Celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th!

Each year on March 8, women around the world take time to reflect on the current status of women and demand equity under the law, safe and equitable working conditions and freedom from violence in society at large.


International Women’s Day commemorates the achievements and accomplishments of women, especially in the workplace. It is celebrated in a variety of ways: parades, health fairs, film festivals, dances, concerts and commemorative buttons. It is a time to feel pride in being a woman and to support other women in their endeavours.
