The first Women’s Day was celebrated on February 28, 1909 in New York. A couple of years later Luise Zeitz proposed the day be celebrated annually, representing many of the issues women faced at that point in time. In 1977 the United Nations General Assembly March 8 International Women’s Day.
How to celebrate. There are organized events across the country you can attend. If you prefer a smaller more intimate group, you can create a soiree of co-workers, friends and family to get the celebration started. While together, recognize and celebrate the achievements of original suffragettes and others who paved the way for our rights collectively. Celebrate these achievements both great and small. Be grateful for what we have and the life we live today as women in this modern age. Happy International Women’s Day!
Have a beautiful and successful week!
