March 8: International Women’s Day Centenary 1911 – 2011

iwd_celebrate_colourInternational Women’s Day (IWD) is held annually on March 8 and was first declared in 1910 with the first IWD event held in 1911. The International Women’s Day Centenary should make the women of past proud, the women of current inspired, and the women of the future envisioned. Women have made great strides in equality yet there is still a great deal to be achieved on many fronts and the 2011 IWD Centenary provides a unique and global opportunity to reignite, inspire and channel women’s equality for the future.
