Every year, March 8 is celebrated as International Women s Day, with the aim of celebrating the spirit of women and their economic, political, and social achievements. The birth of this day dates back to the early 1900s when oppression and inequality were egging women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change. The first National Woman s Day was more or less a political event, an initiative of Socialist Party of America, who observed it across the United States on February 28.
