100th International Women’s Day

Wish you all a happy Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day is marked on the 8th of March every year. The first International Women’s Day was observed on 19 March 1911 in Germany following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America. The idea of having an international women’s day was first put forward at the turn of the 20th century amid rapid world industrialization and economic expansion that led to protests over working conditions.

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 (such as Bulgaria and Romania) it is also observed as an equivalent of Mother’s Day, where children also give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

This year world celebrates 100th International Women’s Day on March 8, 2011. The UN theme for International Women’s Day 2011 is ‘Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women’.

Tomorrow is 100th International Women’s Day-This Women’s Day just stand tall becoz you are the most special!!!
