People around the world celebrate International Women’s Day annually.

More than a hundred years ago, March 8 was designated International Women’s Day.

You may have heard the phrase “International Women’s Day” thrown around in the media or among friends.

But what is the reason for devoting this particular day to women? What is its specific date among the days of the year? Is there an International Men’s Day on the other hand? What is the importance of such a tradition?

How did it start?

Clara Zetkin.

In 1910, Clara Zetkin was the first to establish International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day emerged from the labor movement to become an annual event recognized by the United Nations.
