International Women’s Day celebrates women’s equality and achievements – International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. Suffragettes campaigned for women’s right to vote. The word ‘Suffragette’ is derived from the word “suffrage” meaning the right to vote. International Women’s Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. The first International Women’s Day event was run in 1911. 2011 was the Global Centenary Year. Visit internationalwomensday.com website
