March 8 is International Women's Day

See LabourStart's special coverage of women workers. LabourStart will report on women worker's issues -- including struggles for equality -- throughout the year. Please spread the word.

International Women's Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.
