International Women’s Day

Recognized annually on March 8, International Women’s Day (IWD) is a celebration of the achievements of women in the social, economic, political, and cultural spheres. It is also a day to acknowledge and reflect on the challenges women continue to face in the fight for gender equality. With its beginnings in Europe in 1911, IWD was first officially recognized by the United Nations in 1975, and sees many events celebrating women worldwide.

We deliberately chose to include and recognize those whose contributions are often overlooked: mainly queer women, trans women, and transfeminine folks.
