International Women’s Day Began During the Industrial Revolution!
Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland began International Women’s Day in 1911 during a time of great chaos, population growth, and the forefront of the women’s rights movement. In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter work hours, better pay and the right to vote.
A little over 100 years later, International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world. On March 8, 2011, The WIN celebrated by helping to present 377 live events in 152 countries.
The next International Women’s Day Celebration is March 8, 2019.
This is Our Time!
It will be a fabulous global celebration of women past, present, and future.
Each year, on International Women’s Day, the Women’s Information Network (WIN) presents amazing LIVE celebrations in many countries around the globe!
