International Women's Day-March 8, 2015

"Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!" 
is the UN theme for International Women's Day 2015. The history leading to the current recognition of International Women's Day is both interesting and complex. The inception of "Women's Day" dates back to 1909.  The initial concept commemorated the 1908 strike of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Labor Union in New York.  In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the United Nation's Day for women's rights and world peace. Today, much of the world celebrates this day to recognize the accomplishments, struggles, and future of women worldwide.
