Celebration of Women

Today is 8th March and it is an important date for women around the world – International Women’s Day (IWD). 

IWD is on the 8th of March every year and it is a day of global celebration of women.  Throughout the years, women  of different countries struggled for equality, justice, peace and development.   IWD is the day where women in different regions enjoy general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women, to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements. 

On this day it is customary for men to give the women in their lives – mothers, wives, girlfriends, daughters, colleagues, etc – flowers and small gifts.  In some countries, it is also observed as an equivalent of Mother’s Day, where children also give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

Show your love and respect to the women in your lives!
