The history of International Women’s Day dates back to the early 20th century when women in Europe and the United States began to organize and advocate for women’s rights. In 1908, a group of women in New York City held the first Women’s Day march to demand better working conditions and the right to vote. Two years later, an International Women’s Conference was held in Copenhagen, where delegates from 17 countries agreed to establish an annual International Women’s Day to promote women’s suffrage and labour rights.
Since then, International Women’s Day has grown into a global movement, with events and activities taking place in countries around the world.
