The IWD logo.
The world will again celebrate women's achievements on Mar. 8, 2011, as it is celebrated each year on the same date.


Yes, we know. It's exactly two months away.

This year's celebration will be the 100th. IWD started in March 19, 1911. The first National Women's Day in the United States was recognized on the 28th of February, 1908.

Coutries like Austria, Denmark, Switzerland and Germany honored the IWD after the International Conference of Working Women was held in the city of Copenhagen where the proponent Clara Zetkin said that there should be an international event dedicated to all women.


2011 Theme: Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women.


My advanced greeting to all women out there! HAPPY WOMEN's DAY!!! You all are doing great!
